Daughters of the African Slave Trade "Reclaiming our Health."
Hello, my Virginia sistah trekkers! Your chance to put a big check in (the box of)your Harriet Handbook. Join me for a historical one and a half hour, 5-mile walk in the footsteps of our African ancestors. The Richmond Slave Trail, a self-guided walking tour of 17 sites, chronicles the trade of enslaved Africans to Virginia until 1775, and their shipment away from Virginia to other points in the Americas until emancipation in 1865. If you live in Hampton Roads I have room for 3 (leaving at 7 am) to ride up and back the same day. We will enjoy a healthy lunch at "Chopt" at Willow Lawn (at your expense). Bring water bottles and a small fanny-like pack (for your phone, money, and ID). We will be walking along the James river bank, over a concrete bridge (with a pedestrian sidewalk), across an island into the heart of downtown Richmond to the Reconciliation Statue. The statue is one of three(the other two are in Liverpool England and Benin West Africa) symbolize a commitment to new relationships based on honesty, forgiveness, and reconciliation. You will get more information on the morning of the trek. Please be there by 8:30 AM.
