H.R. 1242 Resilience Project, Inc. is coordinating a commemoration for the 400 Years of African American History Commission Act through the following activities. Don Victor Mooney was the first human to solo row from the coast of West Africa to Brooklyn, New York (United States) and the first African American to row across any ocean.
The Virginia Inside Passage, the corridor for freedom along the Eastern shore of Delmarva Penisula, saw countless enslaved Africans take this route to emancipate themselves from the shackles of slavery.
This will be a lasting tribute to a fearless woman, freedom fighter, an abolitionist who never gave up and to all those known and unkown that took this waterway .
It is our prayful hope, that the U.S. Congress will establish the Harriet Tubman Waterway Act in commemoration of 400 Years of African American History
