Calvin Pearson, Founder, Project 1619 Inc.

Far from home and the comforts of their familial tribes and culture these first Africans endured these shores. Despite their unimaginalbe journey they emerged as survivors and their blood continues to course through their numerous descendants in America today. With invaluable facts and genealogical information documenting the paths they walked Knight brings our ancestors to life.
