H.R. 1242 Resilience Project, Inc. is coordinating a commemoration for the 400 Years of African American History Commission Act through the following activities.
HR 1242 Resilience Project has launched an initiative to rename the Virginia Inside Passage to the Harriet Tubman Waterway. This will be a lasting tribute to a fearless woman, freedom fighter, an abolitionist who never gave up.
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.
Harriet Tubman knew this terrain, mastered the elements, and never lost a passenger.
Dr. Rev. Herbert Daughtry, Don Victor Mooney, US Embassy in Dakar Charge de' Affairs, and others inside The House of Slaves (Maison des Esclaves) and its Door of No Return. Mooney was leaving on his second attempt to row across the Atlantic Ocean. He didn't make it.
On Don Victor Mooney's third attempt to row across the Atlantic Ocean, his boat took on water and he drifted in a life raft for 14 days in open water until rescued by MV Norfolk. He never gave up!
