The 400th anniversary commemoration of Africans brought to North America for slavery will be marked in Arizona on August 20th. The anniversary will be marked with a festival at the First Institutional Baptist Church in Phoenix. We hear more about the event and what the 400th anniversary of Africans being brought to this continent in chains means to the African-American and African communities today with Dr. Warren Stewart, senior pastor at the First Institutional Baptist Church, and the Reverend Jean Claude Habineza from Rwanda.
