Victor Mooney, President of H.R. 1242 Resilience Project hand-delivered a time capsule to commemorate the 400 years of African American History to H.E. Mr. Simeón Oyono Esono Angue, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation in Equatorial Guinea recently.
The time capsule included a cd from Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir called ‘This Is Your House”.
Other items included artifacts, photos, letters, books, rocks, jewelry, coins, citations, journals, proclamations, sugar, tobacco, and cotton.
H.R. 1242 Resilience Project year-long commemoration was dubbed, 400 Years: Resilience, Faith, Healing, and Partnership.
On a fourth try, Mooney was the first African American to row across the Atlantic Ocean. His 21-month row started from the coast of West Africa to New York’s Brooklyn Bridge.
