• The slaves from the transatlantic slave trade primarily came from the Kingdom of Judah their descendants are African Americans, Afro Ecuadorians, Guyanese, Afro Panamanian, and the rest of the Afro/African Diaspora in the North, South, Central America and the Caribbean are from the Kingdom of Judah there are also some in the Africa but most of them are in North, Central, South America and the Caribbean.

The Lost tribes are called lost because they were removed from Israel before the Kingdom of Judah and the king of Assyria took them, and carried them away into Assyria where some of them intermarried with other ethnicities and others migrated to different lands across the world like the Igbo in Nigeria being from the Tribe of Dan and Aboriginal Australians and Seminole Indians from Tribe of Reuben

The Israelites from the Kingdom of Judah migrated to Africa after the Siege of Jerusalem in the year 70, there are still Israelites scattered in different African countries and we can still locate them, in Ethiopia, Mali, Uganda, Kenya, etc. soon we will be reunited.
