ADM Takes America’s Cup Trustee to NY State Supreme Court.
ADM, Where We Are in Time
Having established the African Diaspora Maritime (ADM) offices in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, we continue to move forward with our ambitious and thrilling agenda. Our goals, of participating in the America’s Cup match races, broadening public awareness of the history of black mariners, and educating young people in science and math through the study of sailing, are well within reach.
With a team and crew of eight men, our presence in the America’s Cup races will continue a legacy as long as the history of maritime exploration, travel, and trade. As the ADM logo represents, with its bold intersecting arrows circling the African continent, the people of the African diaspora have navigated transcontinental waters in multiple capacities.
Here on our website we pursue this history further with a reading list that includes academic, popular, and children’s titles, ranging in subject from coastal merchants, officers of the Navy, sailing, seafaring peoples, and the epic journeys of explorers. We have also developed a curriculum to take young sailing enthusiasts into the field where they will learn the engineering and design of various sailing vessels.
I hope you stay with us as we continue to develop and as the start of the race nears. You can also keep in touch via Facebook and Twitter.
