Harlem, New York (March 18, 2019) - Rev. Dr. Al Sharpton, President of National Action Network (NAN) announced his support for a stone plaque to be mounted at Brooklyn Bridge Park at NAN's Saturday Rally.

The stone plaque will commemorate 400th anniversary of the first enslaved Africans arriving in United States, the resilience of African Americans and there contributions to the United States.

"It took 5,000 miles/ twenty-one months on my fourth try to row from Africa to Brooklyn, so lets do another 5,000, but with an online petition drive, says Don Victor Mooney, President of HR 1242 Resilience Project, and first African American to row across any ocean.

Rev. Dr. Herbert Daughtry, of the House of the Lord Church and Rev. Dr. Johnny Ray Youngblood of Mount Pisagh in Brooklyn are the other leading backers of this initiative.
