Proclamation from the City of Hampton and Mayor George Wallace

After it's 3rd year, Remembrance has received a proclamation that from this day forth, June 14th, annually the 2nd Saturday in June will be recognized as The Sankofa Projects International Day of Remembrance. We are an International Movement and are very proud of this recognition by our city and Mayor Wallace. The proclamation was read by Vice Mayor Curtis on Remembrance day on June 14, 2014. Thank you to Toni Cade Bambara for igniting this passion in us to remember the African Bines in the briny deep."

Remembering Toni Cade Bambara in The Feminist Wire - November 17, 2014

Humbled and honored to have been asked to write an article for The Feminist Wire in celebration of Toni Cade Bambara, whom I lovingly refer to as the "Mother of the Movement." In 2012, I answered Toni's call for us to Remember the Millions of Africans who perished during the Middle Passage of the Transatlantic Trade. Annually we meet at Buckroe Beach to Remember those lost and for you dear Toni. Happy 75thBeloved! http://thefeministwire.com/2014/11/african-bones-in-the-briny-deep/
