Our Story

“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.”  George Washington Carver 

I watched the movie Amistad. It is the moving account of Africans kidnapped from Sierra Leone and sold into slavery. They take control of the slave ship and end up captured by Americans when the Spanish ship drifts into U.S. waters. They begin a fight to prove that they are free and to return to their home. Just one of many incredible stories of survival, fighting for freedom and dignity that represents the history of all people. Celebrate history, the stories that tell us all who we were and who we are.
