Blackhistory, Love, and Memes: Beyonce's "Love Drought" video scene is about the "Igbo Landing" story - An act of mass resistance against slavery. A group of Igbo slaves revolted, took control of their slave ship, grounded it on an island... And rather than submit to slavery, proceeded to march into the water while singing in Igbo, drowning themselves in... The song they sang in the Igbo language meant "The Water Spirit brought us, the Water Spirit will take us home" Repost from @africanarchives blackhistorymonth blackhistory ancestors becauseofthemwecan
