Since time out of mind, mankind has been fascinated with the sea. Who, as a child, when given the opportunity to go to the beach, has not stared out across the water and wondered what lies over the horizon?

From the humble yet noble dugout canoe to the most modern superliner, black mariners have played a vital role in mankind's exploration and conquest of the sea. This site will attempt to provide, in one location, information about the black mariner down through the ages. We will cover princes, war heroes, pirates, fishermen, explorers and other black seamen of note wherever they may have plied the seven seas. This is a work-in-progress. As we get or find new information, it will be published here. So check back frequently.
