Modern Day Abolitionists

Modern Day Abolitionists: Amistad America from #NHV on Vimeo.  Music by AreaBridges.

5:30 this morning (video still-frame, see video)
The Amistad returned to its home port, #Nhv Connecticut, at 5:30am July 22, 2013 after four years of traveling the seas as far as Cuba to spread their message.  Recently appointed Executive Director Hanifa Washington discusses the new partnership with Love146, a group that works to end modern slavery.

Tomorrow, at 10:00am at Long Wharf, you can see the ship in real life and hear more about that new plan.

To learn more about the ship, we suggest reading the "Legacy" part of the wikipedia article.  See calendars to add to yours, and hope to see you there.
