Celebrating Black History Month

African Art 3

The first African to come to America was not a slave. In fact, he was a free man named Juan Garrido and he was born in West Africa and came to what is now known as Florida in 1513 as one of the first conquistadors in their search for the Fountain of Youth.

“Whatever we believe about ourselves and our ability comes true for us.”
