Sengbe Pieh (also known as Joseph Cinque) was born in Mani in present-day Sierra Leone in 1813/1814.  He was a rice farmer and trader, and at the time of his capture he had a wife and three children.
In 1839 slave traders kidnapped Pieh while he was working in the rice fields.  He was taken to Lomboko off of the Gallinas Coast.  He, with countless others, were sent to Havana, Cuba to be sold into slavery. Pieh and 52 men, women, and children were purchased by  two Spanish plantation owners and boarded onto the schooner La Amistad.
Three days into the voyage to Porto Principe, Cuba, Pieh freed himself and others from their shackles.  They killed the captain, cook, and two other crew members disappeared.  Having taken over the ship, Pieh ordered the schooner sail towards Africa. Rather than comply, the second-mate - who was steering the ship - secretly changed course at night, sailing west or north.  After two months at sea the Amistad was seized by the U.S. brig Washington off the coast of Long Island, NY. Sengbe Pieh and the surviving African captives were arrested and charged with murder and piracy.
Pieh and the others told their story through a translator; providing accounts of their capture, sale into slavery, and their attempts to free themselves aboard the Amistad.  The courts - first the District Court, then the Circuit Court, and finally the Supreme Court - ruled in their favor. They ruled that Pieh and the others had been illegally captured, and thus illegally sold into slavery.
In November 1841 Sengbe Pieh returned to Mendeland in present-day Sierra Leone with the other African captives. They were accompanied by missionaries charged with helping them readjust to life in Africa. 
It is not believed that Pieh ever found his family, as reports say that they perished during an ongoing war.  Little is known of what became of Sengbe Pieh after his return to Sierra Leone.
Sengbe Pieh is just one of many associated with the Amistad event. 🙏🏿✊🏿❤🖤💚 #ancestralpride #ancestralacknowledgement

As I conclude a process that will see me work with legendary poet #soniasanchez and that has had me research and embody the lifestyle of black liberation collectives, I am grateful for #blackjoy in all its many facets. Our #joy, #laughter , #smile , #celebration and #liberation is #revolutionary. Working on this project w/ this super-talented cast & filmmaker @ephraimasili has been enlightening on so many levels and I’m excited to continue liberating bodies, minds and souls. 📷: @sindayiganza for @theblackjoyproject • • •

How many of us have thought about how different our lives might be if we could go back and restart our childhoods with all the knowledge we have now?

That’s why I’m writing and illustrating this book. It’s not for you —it’s for generations coming after you. It’s for your kids and theirs. For all those who will be forced to evolve as a result of our failures to do so. This is the book I would go back give myself when I was an adolescent. "War Paint - The ART of DISSENT" will include illustrations, poetry, essays, two sequential short stories, and a spoken word DVD.

This book is an in-depth introduction to counter-culture initiatives for the anarcho-curious, and examines the roles art and entertainment play in both pacification and activism.

I made this video back in June, 3 months after I returned to work from recovering from broken elbows. I told myself in 2017 that despite resistance around me I was going to dive fully into the purpose that I knew was destined for me and embrace my authentic self. And that meant creating 5th.dimension.robyn and sharing it with who ever might resonate with my message. I knew there were a lot of people who weren't going to understand me, but over the last couple of years, I realized that I needed to do this for the people who DO understand me, without fear of rejection and ridicule. And I stayed true to myself, and tuned into my guidance - Little did I know this would be one of the last times I would be sitting on this front step. I do not regret my decision to be myself. Although 2017 was probably the most difficult year of my life 5th.dimension.robyn was the best thing that has ever happened to me. The greatest decision I have ever made. I had no idea how quickly how many lives I would touch. The amount of people who have come to me because they don't feel like anyone else would understand them. I am so grateful I stayed true to myself and did something I was afraid of. And because I made that decision, the Universe continues to reward me for all of my sacrifices and hard work and commitment to helping YOU guys. Gone are the days of worrying if people think I'm too out there. I will not sensor my truth, as I know I am here to help build a new future for this planet. And just as the old adage goes-you will never influence the world by being just like it. So a big heartfelt thank you to everyone in my life who has supported and loved me for all that I am. And if I make you uncomfortable - GOOD. change is never made by staying in your comfort zone. Love and gratitude to you all ❤️ #5thdimensionrobyn #channel #guide #intuitive #tarotreader #mystic #esoteric #pleiadian #higherconsciousness #mysteryschools #energy #multidimensional #paradigmshift #newfuture #brightfuture #revolutionary #truthdealer #nofear #staytrue #loveyourself #ascension #motivation #positivity #love #5thdimension #newearth #evolve #grow #change #authenticself
