On September 8, I had the honor of boarding the Amistad docked in Yonkers, New York. The event was a last minute one, arranged in part through African American Westchester 400 (AAW400) and the City of Yonkers. I am a member of that committee. Although the 400th Anniversary is over, the work continues to tell the story of the African contributions to the our county, state, and country.
