Image of Valerie Holmes as AngelaThe Second Annual Black Powers Matter event is proud to host Valerie Holmes', an actress who narrates Angela's story at colonial Jamestown. Angela's Story is based on Valerie's exploration and research of the pre-enslavement, Middle Passage journey, and enslavement of one of the first kidnapped Africans brought to mainland North America in 1619. This hour-long event includes Valerie's narrating of Angela's story, describing the process by which she crafted the narrative, and a question and answer period.
