Road Tour — Day Seven — Richmond
We’re in the home stretch. Richmond marks the end of the first half of the We Are Africa Road Tour. The good news? We get to sleep in our own beds tonight. The bad news? Not many Cracker Barrels going north.
A great crowd turned out for our Richmond event. Drumming, dancing, and knowledge all made for a good time for everyone. Dr. Maureen Elgersman-Lee looked to Delegate Delores McQuinn for emotional support as we revealed her Mandinka roots.
Delegate McQuinn’s family was excited to learn of their Nigerian roots.
Speaking of family, Kea’s family came out to support the Tour and I Still Do. She was really glad to see them.
I must admit that the highlight of the day was little Nana Sekou. He stole the show from beginning to end. I need to bottle his energy for the rest of the Tour! Click here to see more images from Richmond.
