Welcome to ARTriumph Historical Society for The Artesian Renaissance
The Wellspring of A New Season Honoring The 1619-2019 African American Journey for Freedom!
Celebrate 400 years of Black History from 1619-2019 through, The Artesian Renaissance, beginning January 1, 2019! This new, cultural renaissance consecrates, commemorates, and celebrates the triumphant, 400-year legacy of the 1619-2019 African American journey for freedom–humanity. The journey began with the global human trafficking that led to a group of Africans being brought to the English colony of Virginia in 1619. Hence, The Artesian Renaissance is also a symbolic, healing narrative for the TransAtlantic Triangular (Enslavement) Trade's chapter, especially its Middle Passage, in mankind’s universal struggle for freedom.
Like other renaissance periods, people may celebrate this new season through the arts & humanities, culture, and other fields/arenas via artistic creations, events, programs, activities, services, and products presented in 2019, 2020+, and/or annually. Add the 'Celebrate 400 Years of Black History from 1619-2019' theme (i.e., 'The Artesian Renaissance Triumph' - THEART™) with existing observances or create totally new ones! Please join with us at ARTriumph where you and a host of other entities may register your observances, give 501 (c)(3), tax-deductible donations to support this cause, and/or sign up to help serve in promoting, preserving, and presenting the history of this refreshing, new water whose beautiful tapestry of THEART™ colorfully weaves the 400-Year, Global Story of the African American 1619 - 2019 Freedom Triumph!
