The first 2 Walls will list the names of our enslaved ancestors who had slave narratives published about their lives and enslaved ancestors that labored in the Great Dismal Swamp, Maroons that escaped slavery and found refuge in the swamp and supporters of the Underground Railroad connected to the Great Dismal Swamp and Canal (VA/NC). 2 additional Walls will be erected for listing top sponsors. Individual sponsors ($10.00 or more) will be listed in our online database for digital signage display when Restoration Center is completed.

ABOUT MUBITA, LLC
Because of Mubita's historical research and inspiration from his own ancestor, Moses Grandy and his 1843 slave narrative, he also established a Strategic Tourism Partnership between the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in Suffolk, Virginia and the Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) in the Barotseland Kingdom. The strategic tourism partnership will help develop heritage tourism, trade and restore relationships between descendants of American Africans and Africans on the Continent. Barotseland in Western Province, Zambia will be the location for his planned Homecoming Headquarters at Restoration Center.

REFLECTION PIER AT THE GREAT DISMAL SWAMP NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE (Suffolk, VA)Mubita LLC, in collaboration with the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in Suffolk, VA, is planning a memorial naming project at the Refuge's Lake Drummond pier to honor the memory of Moses Grandy, the Maroon enslaved and free freedom seekers, Indigenous ancestors and freedom supporters of all races, all being associated with the Great Dismal Swamp. The pier will be named "Reflection Pier." In his 1843 slave narrative, Moses described his experience living in the Dismal Swamp at Lake Drumond, as he healed from his wounds he got by laboring on the Dismal Swamp Canal contruction. Reflection Pier will be a major heritage destination tourism attraction for visitors from around the world to visit and pay homage to those who live and/or worked in the Great Dismal Swamp area and also used the Swamp to gain their freedo as part of the Underground Railroad (UGRR) freedom system. The Pier will also become a place for the public to reflect and heal from personal and/or systemic trauma, resulting in healing of the mind, body and spirit, similar to the effects of freedom that our Ancestors found in this place of refuge.
