Dada

Missy Burton, 2018, Dallas Texas

Dada (1800-1860) is Akofena’s daughter. Her name means “sister” in Swahili. Dada was playing by the river when she was 10 and was captured by a rival tribe and sold to British Europeans. She ended up enslaved in South Carolina. Raped at the age of 14 by her owner, she gave birth to Aba at the age of 15.
