“Living Our Purpose: Enrichment in Heritage” Trivia Questions
This year marks 400 years since the first Africans arrived in the British North American colonies as enslaved people in 1619. Despite the tragic adversity of inhumane circumstances and struggles suffered, however, 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 civil rights activists who, in the face of prohibitions, injustices, and persecution have used their voices, talents, and gifts to push toward equality, freedom, and access to the American Dream for African Americans. They worked to fulfill their purpose by contributing to attainment of civil rights for their people. 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.
