Heritage1519 was created in response to the political, social, and racial climate of America and was inspired by the journey of black people from Africa to America. Enamored by the rich Heritage of the culture, we felt there was a need for people to be reminded that they are amazing and full of magic. The 1519 is in reference to slavery; black people were slaves from the 15th - 19th century and although we have overcome a lot, there are still battles to be won. So stay proud, stay in the know, and stay active. One Love!
