Exegi monumentum aere perennius


On every membership certificate are the inscribed Latin words of Roman poet Horace: “Exegi monumentum aere perennius” (a monument more lasting than bronze), as a consequence of which, he went on to say, “Non omnis moriar” (I shall not wholly die").

The Society of the First African Families of English America was formed to ensure that the struggles, contributions and perseverance of our ancestors will never die, and through our deeds will now live through the generations.
