1619-2019 400 YEARS COMMEMORATIVE GALA & AWARD DINNER

Dear Friends/Supporters/Community Partners/Continental and Diaspora Africans:

You are cordially invited to support the Coalition of Organizations, in conjunction with Africa400years.org, in the hosting of the 1619-2019 400 Years Commemorative Gala & Award Dinner remembering the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. Dubbed a “Unity Gala,” this historic event will be held on Friday, November 8, 2019, at Robert Treat Hotel Grand Ballroom, 50 Park Place, Newark, NJ, starting at 6 p.m.

Our “Unity Gala” brings us all together as one to remember the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in an English colony and simultaneously to reflect on and lift up the 400-year story of resilience of Africans and her descendants, and their central role in the founding and prosperity of the United States.

To ensure a commemoration befitting this historic moment, we ask your support by your attendance, sponsorship or partnership of this unity gala and the commemorative journal. Proceeds will be used to support organizations and communities in Africa and the African-American and Caribbean Diaspora that align with and complement the goals of the Africa400years.org movement.

Dedicated to promoting the events of and supporting the success of continental Africa and African-Americans in the Diaspora, Africa400Years.org is an organization with a strong interest in the support of women and girls across the globe and helping to give a voice to the voiceless.

We ask for your RSVP indicating your attendance and/or supporting advertisement in the unity gala journal by October 15. Please contact us at 646-830-4367 or email us at info@africa400years.org. Please request for advertisement form for your use by email.

Thank you in advance for your support and we look forward to welcoming you or your representative to the “Unity Gala” on November 8.
