August 25, 2019, 3:00 PM - 3:04 PM @ Fredericksburg
The Fredericksburg Area Museum (FAM) is organizing Fredericksburg’s participation in a nationwide bell ringing ceremony to honor the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in the English colonies 400 years ago. On Sunday, August 25, 2019 at 3:00pm, Fredericksburg’s church bells, along with bells across the United States, will ring to commemorate the first enslaved Africans who landed in English colonies at Point Comfort, VA in 1619. The bells will ring for four minutes, one minute for every 100 years. This National bell ringing will enable the Fredericksburg community to participate in this historic moment.
