"2019 AFRICA HOMECOMING PILGRIMAGE & THE RETURN WEEKEND"
August 1-4, 2019
(Hampton Roads, VA and Washington, DC)
Mark your calendars to be in Virginia for this commemoration weekend as DRS acknowledges the 400th anniversary of our enslaved African ancestors stepping foot on the shores of the James River in 1619 and our 2019 reconnection to the Motherland during our Africa Homecoming Pilgrimage. The Return Weekend will be filled with an ancestral commemoration ceremony, community expo, dinner gala, ecumenical service and more to pay homage to our Ancestors.
