Making plans 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 on our Africa Homecoming Pilgrimage. The Return Weekend will be filled with history and culture programs, an ancestral commemoration ceremony, dinner gala, ecumenical service and more to pay homage to our Ancestors.
