400 Plus YEARS
1619 ENSLAVED - 2022 EMPOWERED
"To know our historical worth is of far greater value than to know our history of oppression" - Sheryl Mallory-Johnson, Founder
400 years after the first African captives arrived in English North American in the year 1619, the 1619 National Celebration of Black Women, Inc. launched a nationwide movement in recognition of Black women's extraordinary contributions in building America.
Founded in San Diego, California, April 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 helped to build the most powerful nation in the world.
100 years from now we envision an America where every Black woman and girl can proudly say "I AM 1619!"
Honoring Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court.
"Don't sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them. "
