“Living Our Purpose: Enrichment in Heritage” Trivia Questions
The first Africans arrived in the British North American colonies as enslaved people in 1619. This year (2019) marks 400 years since that historic event. Despite the tragic adversity of inhumane circumstances and struggles suffered, African Americans have persevered and contributed significantly and substantially to the United States and the world. This week’s trivia questions will focus on historical facts about several of the many brilliant minds who lived their purpose and accomplished greatness for themselves and the nation in the face of prohibitions, injustices, and struggles suffered by African Americans during the times. Please submit your responses to each question as directed. A drawing will be conducted each week to select three participants to receive a gift. Winning participants will be announced during the Taste of Heritage Fest on Sunday, February 24th. Gifts will also be given at that time.
