How this came to be

I no longer use the term "African American" to describe myself. I don't need to. I know who my people are. I have met them. I am them and they are me. We are the Temne people of Sierra Leone.


The Temnes comprise approximately 35% of the people of Sierra Leone. We are the largest ethnic group in the country and are highly represented among the Africans stolen from our shores so many years ago.


I received the warmest welcome ever from my people. I was touched. I was moved. And I was inspired. They asked for a little help and I am doing my best to ensure that the health clinic they so desperately need will be completed by the end of 2020.


That is where you come in. Watch the video. Learn the story of how this came to be. DONATE.
