Its Time To Embrace Our True History

Don't Lie About Our Past

We are not a history of Slaves having a Day off to Gather.  We are not a history of the churches enjoying a congregational gathering.  We are not a history of Black people honoring the celebration of lynching. 

We are the history of the First Black Voting System.  Dating back to 1741.  Don't fight our history embrace it and fight for it.  Today it is a State Holiday to be preserved forever.  

Join us, honor it and build it.
