Remember The 400 Foundation
Remember the 400’s mission is to empower our youth to tell the true story of the atrocities of the Children of Slavery and our contributions globally; and to affect positive change in economic, equality and social justice where the descendants of those slaves reside today.
Our vision is that of an equitable society. One that fosters awareness and understanding amongst all racial/ethnic groups; and one that can provide the descendants of the Children of Slavery with the necessary tools, support, and foundation needed not only to thrive but to begin the process of healing the racial divide.
Our obligation is to celebrate the achievements of the Children of Slavery and their descendants while setting the stage to move forward and towards racial tolerance and reconciliation by upholding the following values:
Education: to bring about awareness of the identity, atrocities, and contributions of the Children of Slavery.
Commitment: to healing the racial divide by cultivating economic empowerment, respect of families and personal integrity.
Service to Others: lead, partner, or participate with community organizers, programs or events that serve to enhance the experience of our youth and promote equality and social justice.
Leadership: inspiring the vision and setting the direction forward.
Citizenship: fostering the precepts of respect and the rights and privileges of all citizens.
