Start making plans to be in Virginia for this commemoration weekend as we acknowledge the 400th anniversary of our enslaved African ancestors who stepped foot on the shores of the James River in 1619 and embrace the future of our reconnection to the Motherland on our Homecomoing Pilgrimage. The weekend will be filled with cultural education programs, an ancestral commemoration ceremony, dinner gala, ecumenical service and more to honor our ancestors' legacy and memory. For more information on how you and your family can participate, contact DRS at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (757) 926-5233.
