The remarkable history of Maryland includes its being the entry
for nearly 100,000 Africans in the century before the American
Revolution. Kunta Kinte was one of these unwilling immigrants,
arriving on September 29, 1767 in the port of Annapolis where he
was sold to a Virginia planter. His descendent, Alex Haley,
learned of him through family storytelling which he turned into
a bestselling book: Roots, the Saga of an American Family. The
Kunta Kinte Festival takes us back to enjoy the rhythms and
beauty of a Gambian village, honoring his ceaseless wish to hold
tightly to his culture.
