"In every major world city there are people that look like me. In today's political and economic climate, we must recognize that first we are Black, and for some, when they see a Black person, they only see a readily available source for cheap labor."

"We're here to recognize the 400th year since the transatlantic slave trade. It's important to note that we are recognizing it, not celebrating. You don't celebrate a tragedy. And we cannot forget what that tragedy's impact has had on our world."

African Americans built & fought for this country. But we must deepen our appreciation and understanding of the journey that brought us here to ensure our democracy works for everyone. Thank you for capturing our historic departure to Ghana.

400 yrs ago, the 1st enslaved ancestors were brought to this land and forced into generations of slavery. Centuries later, we proudly stand in glory as their descendants—empowered by their legacy and emboldened by the knowledge that we built this country.
