BRONX:AFRICA will explore and celebrate the influence of contemporary African cultures in the Bronx and reinforce connections among the many peoples of African descent, mixed heritage and migration-dispersion that call the Bronx home.

Charlotte, North Carolina, Named After a Mulatto Desendant

Queen-Charlotte-of-England

Queen Charlotte of England (1744-1818), wife of the English King George III (1738-1820), was directly descended from Margarita de Castro y Sousa, a Black branch of the Portuguese Royal House. Her contemporaries described her as having “a true mulatto face.” The city of Charlotte, North Carolina, is named after her.

About Community Greens

It takes more than a village to raise a child in today's world. The world is more than flat or round or sun and moon. It's also the village on the other side of the river. The objects in the sky are different from that view. Community Greens, griot-like, tells a story. I invite you to share my view.
