WHAT IS PROJECT 1619?
ARRIVAL OF THE FIRST AFRICANS IN COLONIAL AMERICA
Project 1619 is an awareness non profit organization dedicated to truth and OURSTORY. CALVIN PEARSON is a native of HAMPTON, VIRGINIA and the Founder and President of Project 1619, a not for profit organization.
The mission is to promote the arrival of the FIRST AFRICANS in America to be brought a shore on British occupied territory at POINT COMFORT, todays FORT MONROE in Hampton, Virginia.
This organization is also raising funds to erect a NATIONAL MONUMENT at FORT MONROE by 2019 in honor of the 400th Anniversary of the arrival of the first AFRICANS.
Mr. Pearson has for 20 years led a grassroots effort to tell the true story of the FIRST AFRICANS that had been purposely falsified since 1619. He organizes an ANNUAL AFRICAN LANDING COMMEMORATION DAY EVENT in Hampton each year that includes a symposium, concerts and prayer service. Mr. Pearson is also chairman of the NATIONAL JUNETEENTH GRASSROOTS ENSLAVEMENT LEGACY COMMISSION. He has authored many articles on this subject and featured in many magazines. He is a frequent speaker at conferences and travels around the country, sharing his knowledge about what he calls the biggest transgression and atrocity that mankind has ever committed against another ethnic group.
He attended Hampton University and the University of the District of Columbia and has a degree in Architectural Engineering Technology. He spent the majority of his career in Public Administration. As a life long resident of Hampton and knowing that the truth was not being told, he has always had a desire to research genealogy and the history of the FIRST AFRICANS in COLONIAL AMERICA.
