From Wikipedia

Maafa (or African Holocaust, Holocaust of Enslavement, or Black holocaust as alternatives)[1][2][3] are political neologisms (popularized from 1998 onwards[4][5][6][7]) used to describe the history and ongoing effects of atrocities inflicted on African people, particularly when committed by non-Africans[clarification needed], specifically in the context of the history of slavery, including the Arab Slave Trade and Atlantic Slave Trade, and argued as "continued to the present day" through imperialism, colonialism, and other forms of oppression.[4][6][7][8][9][10] For example, Maulana Karenga (2001) puts slavery in the broader context of the Maafa, suggesting that its effects exceed mere physical persecution and legal disenfranchisement: the "destruction of human possibility involved redefining African humanity to the world, poisoning past, present and future relations with others who only know us through this stereotyping and thus damaging the truly human relations among peoples."[11]
