Our Journey 

Seeking Truth in History

In 1994 members of the organization started a national campaign to dispel the false narrative that the first Enslaved Africans who were kidnapped from Angola, Africa, landed at Jamestown, Virginia. The First Enslaved Africans landed at Point Comfort, present day Fort Monroe in Hampton, Virginia on August 25, 1619.

Point Comfort is Ground Zero. It is the ancestral land where African human bondage began in English North America. Point Comfort represents the beginning of African and African American  history and culture in what would eventually become the United States of America.   


Our Story
