In August 1619, between 20 and 30 enslaved Africans were brought to Jamestown, Virginia, and then sold to colonists. 2019 marks the 400th anniversary of this event.
To celebrate the millions of enslaved Africans whose labor, creativity and endurance have contributed greatly to the prosperity of this great nation, the Mill Basin Branch will host a series of special programs, from October - December, 2019.
The third of our "1619" offerings is a showing of the film classic "In the Heat of the Night".
