Our present focus concerning the USCHI is primarily on Beaufort County South Carolina. We have been working with United States Veterans Administration who has been assisting us to identify and place markers and headstones in the various church & private, governmental and church cemeteries throughout the county.
We have divided Beaufort County into four areas for the purpose of maximizing the various individual localized expressions of love, spoken word, song and praise scheduled by our designated Area Coordinators, who in turn, have planned with local officials, spiritual, community and cultural leaders to take place prior to the main events of a combination of symposiums, entertainment and lectures scheduled between Sunday November 4-Monday November 12, 2007.
After Beaufort County we will be moving on to Savannah Georgia in Chatham County to duplicate this process for Black History Month. Then we will be back in South Carolina where our next series of celebrations focused on the other counties where the other United States Colored troops fought.
Our vision is to complete South Carolina first; move on to all of Georgia’s Counties and then onto the rest of the United States until every one of the African American troops that fought in the Civil War has a visible stone or marker.
We have created an exploratory community made of some of the finest minds in the United States to help us design and create a Museum [to be placed on Hilton Head Island within Beaufort County South Carolina where the very first Colored Troops were formed] that will house a copy of all the records, genealogical materials and family recording, slave sales, plantation records and church records, complete military records, all digitized print and electronic media, photographs, all records relating to the transport and designations recorded for the families of the Colored Troops starting with the first abduction from Africa to project designed to an unscramble the illegal activates resulting to the importation of the enslaved families after the official United States ban on the importation of the enslaved, All transactions from the Freedman Bank by these veterans and their family members and all other records that will help bring focus and clarity to lives of the Black Civil War Heroes throughout the United States.
The Sankofa Restoration Project, Inc. is an advocacy group for the accurate conveyance of the story of African people throughout the world. We are Griot [An African expression for a master story-tellers] And therefore we have form our research under our Department of Griotology.
We are dedicated to the proposition that African of all cultures, languages and spiritual persuasions are, in effect, the best suited to tell their own story.
The United States Colored Troops Headstone initiative Project [USCHI] is the latest project we have set into motion. The ultimate purpose of the headstone project is to provide an ongoing vehicle designed to bring the entire world a snapshot of the individual African American soldiers that fought in the United States Civil War during the years of 1862-1865.
