  • August 25th marks the 1619 landing of the first enslaved Africans in the English-occupied colonies.

National parks will offer special programs on Sunday, Aug. 25 to commemorate the first landing of enslaved Africans 400 years ago in English-occupied North America at Virginia’s Point Comfort, now part of Fort Monroe National Monument. "The National Park Service protects and preserves the sites of some of the most significant events in American history," said National Park Service Deputy Director P. Daniel Smith. "To commemorate the anniversary of the 1619 landing, we are highlighting the places and stories in the National Park System that recognize the impact and legacy of 400 years of African American history and culture.

Aug. 25th will be a day of remembrance, healing, and reconciliation throughout the country. National parks, including Fort Monroe National Monument, will host programs and participate in a nationwide bell ringing at 3:00 PM EDT. Everyone across the country is encouraged to come together in solidarity to ring bells simultaneously for four minutes—one minute for each century—and mark the occasion on social media with #RingToRemember or #400Years || rp via @fitand50 || Follow @hamptonblunetwork
