Mammy's First Africans Arrive

First Africans


Next year Mammy’s will reflect on the 300th and 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans to the United States. We will dedicate 2019 to you.  We will spend more time reaching out to the community. Our goal-- spread the love of family history and preservation of traditions that were passed down from one generation to the next.

We would like to challenge you to travel to the places where your ancestors worked and lived. Visit cemeteries and museums. Plan a family reunion.  Build a family tree. Reflect on all of your ancestors' sacrifices. After all, they are the reason you exist. 

This page will highlight Mammy's participation in programs and events that commemorate the arrival  of the first enslaved Africans to Virginia's Fort Monroe on August 25, 1619 and the first enslaved Africans who arrived in Louisiana in 1719.  

Stay tuned for updates.
