The “Perfect” Ship Massacre took place in 1758 on the River Gambia in West Africa “Perfect” was the name of the ship lead by the British Captain William Potter from Liverpool and it was renown for its size, durability, and performance. The British ship had a crew of 30 plus White Men and they filled the ship with 300 plus captured Africans and began to sail along the River Gambia towards Charleston, South Carolina to sell and enslave the stolen Africans. There were over 300 Local African warriors that were waiting and organized a very well Coordinated attack on the “Perfect” ship. They surrounded the ship in small boats and they were armed with Guns and various Blades. The African warriors Killed the Captain and his crew and took control of the ship and Freed the Captured. School History tends to only show us in a subservient light and not tell us about those that successfully fought back against oppression and slavery. SanKofa!
