Celebrating Black Women
Women's History Month
The Celebration Lives On...
1619 ENSLAVED - 2019 EMPOWERED
2019 marked the 400th year commemoration since the first African captives arrived in North America in the year 1619, a defining moment in American history, not just for people of African descent but for all Americans.
Founded in San Diego, California, August 2018, the 1619 National Celebration of BLACK WOMEN, Inc. arose out of a necessity to recognize women in American history who emerged from slavery, defied the odds and came out victorious; women whose name and face may not be known, but who has given tirelessly of her body, her life, her labor, her genius, and her offspring to help build the most powerful nation in world.
The 1619 National Celebration of Black Women continues to show Black women and girls that a new day is on the horizon, and the continued path of greatness paved by their ancestors is boundless!
We strongly believe the year 1619 must never be forgotten or forsaken.
GET READY FOR 1619NCBW 2020!
