THIS WEEK AT ST. AUGUSTINE’S –
This painting by Sidney King depicts Virginia in 1619 as a Dutch frigate dock at Point Comfort bringing 20 African slaves to be traded to the settlers for food
In recognition of the 400th Anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Jamestown, Virginia, the Union of Black Episcopalians provided today’s Collect and Prayers for the People.
The year 1619, extensively linked to Jamestown, Virginia, marked the start of slavery in what is now the United States of America. In August 1619, a woman and a man were aboard a ship known as The White Lion. They were among the “20 and odd Negroes” that disembarked in Virginia. They were Africans who were “brought for victuall [food],” as recorded by a merchant. Sometime after, the woman and the man, named Isabell Negro and Antoney Negro, had a son named William who was baptized, according to the 1624 census.
