Return To African Greatness

Return To African Greatness

Call in to speak with the host

Brother Vignon Omojagun, the former Thomas Gilmore who was able to throw off his slave name earlier this  month in Ouidah, Benin, West Africa at his naming ceremony is our guest.  Brother Vignon will tell us about his search for this roots which ended in his meeting the family left behind by his African ancestor in what was once Dahomey.  He will talk about how he and his family are recreating the link that was broken during the trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. 

This is an exciting and yet sad story that you do not want to miss!
