On the front:

Charlestown, July 24th, 1769. To be sold, on Thursday the third day of August next, a cargo of ninety-four prime, healthy Negroes, consisting of thirty-nine men, fifteen boys, twenty-four women and sixteen girls. Just arrived, in the brigantine Dembia, Francis Bare, master, from Sierra-Leone, by David & John Deas



On the back:

"America has created a state of mood which is dangerous for the world. In order to buy and sell men like cattle, one had to pretend they were cattle. Being Christian, knowing it was wrong, they had to pretend it was not done to men but to animals. What has happened is that America, which used to buy and sell Black men, still isn’t sure if they are animals or not."

- James Baldwin, 1966
