Photos: Ancestral Remembrance Day Philly 2015 ~ Philadelphia Middle Passage Ceremony and Port Marker Project.

On June 2, each year, the Philadelphia Middle Passage Ceremony & Port Marker Project (PhillyMPC) will honor our ancestors and commemorate the nearly 2 million Africans who perished in the Middle Passage by observing Ancestral Remembrance Day. PhillyMPC’s immediate goal is to gather support for the application and installation of a historical marker in their memory.

It's Ancestral Remembrance day-- and for the third year in a row, community members will gather along the Delware River to pay homage to the slaves that came through the Port of Philadelphia.

Stories are like Roots to the Past & Wings to the Future
Introduction
Stories are like Roots to the Past... and Wings to the Future. Storytelling is an oral art form as ancient as the civilizations of the world, yet, relevant to our time and place.

Denise Valentine's storytelling performance illustrates the power of story to transcend differences between people, inspire hope, and transform negativity. She tells stories that emphasize the dignity of life, the power of the human spirit, and the inter-relatedness of life. 

Denise is a professional storyteller, teaching folk artist, writer and human rights advocate. She has a passion for researching history, then bringing it to life with her captivating voice! Denise has a special interest in African and African American folklore and historical narrative. She made her debut as a storyteller with Keepers of the Culture, Inc. (Philadelphia's Afrocentric Storytelling Group), in 1997. Since then she has shared stories at schools, libraries, museums, community events and conferences. She developed storytelling programs promoting cultural literacy and diversity, conflict resolution, and recovery and empowerment.

Denise Valentine tells LoveStories, Stories to Heal the Heart, Stories of Divine Love, Sacred Love, Love & Respect for Humanity, Love for Mother Earth, and Father Sky, Higher Love, Tough Love, One Love.
