400 Years

400 years ago my ancestors were shipped to these American shores.400 years ago in Virginia, human beings were brought and sold.400 years ago the Africans chain and bond were stripped of their name, language religion, and freedom.400 years ago African slave helped build America to the country it is today although they were treated like and told they never belong.400 years later African Americans feel like they still can't call America home.
400 years...


Note August 20th in the year 1619 the first African slaves touch America shores.1619 project making our history count.
