Inscription.  We still share the stories of our ancestors. We will never forget them or what they sacrificed.

How can we pass on the traditions and memories that are most important to us? What legacy will you share?

The Wanderer survivors brought many traditions from Africa and shared them with their families and friends. Their songs, stories, foods, and folkways are part of a popular culture that connects all of us today.

The legacy of our blended heritage is like a sweet grass basket. Each of our talents, memories, and traditions are like grass blades interwoven into our collective culture that unite us all.
