San Diego Organization Sparks Nationwide Celebration of Black Women (2450 hits)

On March 2, 2019, The 1619 National Celebration of Black Women will spearhead a one-day, one-time national event commemorating the 400th year since the first African captives arrived in Jamestown, Virginia in 1619.

The mission is to celebrate the contributions women of African descent have made in building the United States of America. 1619NCBW is dedicated to educating and uplifting Black women and girls about their ancestors and encouraging them to walk in their power.

The 1619 National Celebration of Black Women was founded in San Diego, CA. As the pioneering city, the national celebration does not start nor end in San Diego. The 1619NCBW recognizes that the daily actions and contributions by individuals, organizations, and institutions across the country are part of a larger movement. To encourage the national celebration, the goal is to rally people in different states and cities to join in and host their own celebrations, whether that is planning a luncheon, hosting an intimate discussion, facilitating a live stream conversation, posting on social media or wearing “I AM 1619” paraphernalia.

The 1619 National Celebration of Black Women believes that this event will 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.

1619NCBW is proud to be the leader of this national celebration and encourage individuals and/or organizations to join in, share with their communities, and bask in the accomplishments of their ancestors.
