Hosted by The Sankofa Projects and sponsored by the Hampton History Museum, Remembrance honors the millions of Africans who perished during the Middle Passage of the Transatlantic Enslavement Trade. Join Sankofa as they educate and celebrate the richness and diversity of the African diaspora and bring awareness to this tragic chapter in American and global history. The program will include traditional African drumming, songs, dance, poetry, historical presentations and a traditional African libation at noon. Attendees are asked to wear white clothing for the ceremony and to bring flowers.
