I really think that Sarah traveled to more than just France and England. For real. There are just too many « Hottentot » sculptures that coincidentally resemble likenesses of Sarah’s body.
Artworks were also sculpted/made to resemble Sarah Baartman.
Unfortunately, when I started this piece about « Venus » three years ago, it looked like I found a number of URL’s regarding Sarah Baartman. Well, I looked again today and I can hardly find shit. It says « paleolithic ». I give up on finding more sculptures of her. I really thought I would find a whole lot of sculptures of her from the 1800’s. I’m sure that someone will find something by the time a new movie is made about her.
Anyway, there are others who have not been laid to rest as well(unfortunately). Parts of these individuals were used to be turned into shoes, belts, purses, dentures(President George Washington), and more.
Some of these items have been passed down as family heirlooms and more. Mere trophies. There are even people who are rumored to have these people’s skulls in their possession! This is beyond a monstrosity! This is beyond devilish!
This is beyond inhumane! I personally have no words for this, because it is way past demonic. The only thing that I can do is to ask those who have such items to give the items made from black people’s/slaves’s body parts back to the appropriate families to be buried. That way these family members’ forefathers/mothers can truly rest in peace.
However, it is wise to do this in an appropriate manner. I do not know who you should go to, to do the right thing. But, I am sure that there is some type of association that could guide you, retrieve the items, contact the families, and give their loved ones a proper burial.
R.I.P. to the masses of undocumented slaves, who went through this. This includes the free blacks who went through this and numerous victims during and after the Jim Crow era as well.
Too many lives were cut short, including babies who were used as crocodile/alligator, shark, and other animal bait.
Although we could not see nor hear your screams and cries, may you truly rest in peace. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏References:
