The history of Ibo’s Landing is one of defiance to being enslaved. In 1803, a group of 75 Africans from Igboland (or present day Republic of Nigeria) were captured and brought to Georgia. Upon landing on St. Simons Island, the Igbo walked in unison into Dunbar Creek, choosing death over enslavement. Street access to this site is limited.
There are several variations of the spelling of Ebo, including Igob and Ibo.
