Community Commemoration in Lowell

ACCL will be attending the 400th Anniversary of The First Landing of Enslaved Africans. The commemoration will take place on August 25th, 2019.

"August 25, 2019 is the 400th anniversary of the first landing of enslaved Africans in English-occupied North America at Point Comfort in Hampton, Virginia, now part of Fort Monroe National Monument, a unit of the National Park System. The anniversary will be commemorated at Fort Monroe as a day of healing and reconciliation. The park and its partners are inviting all 419 national parks, NPS programs, community partners, and the public to come together in solidarity to ring bells simultaneously, at 3:00 pm, across the nation, for four minutes--one for each century--to honor the first Africans who landed in 1619 at Point Comfort and 400 years of African American history."
