Event description

Description

August 2019 marks 400 years since the first enslaved African arrived in United States. With Congress passing H.R. 1242 – 400 Years of African-American History Commission Act to commemorate the anniversary, and Ghana as a major “exit of no return” for Trans-Atlantic slaves designating 2019 as Year of Return for African Diaspora, we have combined these two themes to organize a unique Anniversary Gala in North Carolina for this historical moment!

Please Come One. Come All.

Come and join TAAK and its partners including The John Chavis Historical Society, NC African American Heritage Commission, African Diaspora Coalition of NC, and Ujima for a fantastic evening to HONOR the ancestors by embracing the past, the resiliency of African Heritage, and advancing into the future with all that is within us.

Memorable Event will feature culinary offerings, keynote speaker/panelist, religious and cultural activities, musical performances, special recognitions/awards, music and dancing etc.

No tickets will be sold at the door.
