2019 is a landmark year. It’s been 400 years since the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in the United States. 1619 is widely recognized as the start of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade where millions of Africans were kidnapped and brought to America as free labor.
In November of 2003, I had the opportunity to travel with Krishna Kaur and the International Association of Black Yoga Teachers to Ghana. It was called Yoga in Ghana: “A Celebration of Health and Human Spirit.”
