Honoring African liberation soldiers at Richmond's African Burial Ground

The African Ancestral Chamber and Unitarian Universalists Church held a joint Memorial Day program to honor our ancestral Africans fighting against enslavement in Richmond's earliest years. This report is provided by Iya Esparzza of Afrocity Tours:
"We thank Amen-Ausar so much for the honor and privilege to stand proudly upon the firm shoulders of our African Ancestors, each every one of us, respectively and respectfully. We thank God for the strength and relative good health to even appear at such an awesome and Sacred moment in Time and Space.Thank you!" From Bro. OM
The AAC/UUC Memorial Day Program honoring African soldiers fighting for liberation during the African Holocaust (Maafa) was a hugh success.
