“MAY WE FOREVER STAND”: MASSACHUSETTS COMMEMORATES 400 YEARS of BLACK RESILIENCY

Friday, September 20, 2019

“MAY WE FOREVER STAND”: MASSACHUSETTS COMMEMORATES 400 YEARS of BLACK RESILIENCY The year 2019 marks 400 years since the first enslaved Africans set foot in Jamestown, Virginia. Since then, Black communities have demonstrated remarkable resiliency in the face of cruelty, terror, and systematic oppression. African Americans have not only created pathways to survive but, in many instances, to thrive. Through it all, the Black Church has endured as a beacon of hope and testimony to resurrection. On September 20, 2019, people of faith will gather to honor ancestors, commemorate 400 years of resiliency, and pray for an end to systemic and racial injustice.
