The purpose of FOCAA is to promote the legacy of Crispus Attucks, who was America's first Revolutionary War Patriot for Human Rights and Martyr in the Boston Massacre.
MORE ABOUT US
Our underlying goal is to inspire leadership qualities in Boston youth with a more diverse and inclusive 21st-century appreciation of the life and spirit of Crispus Attucks in the city of Boston, from 1770 to the present.
What We Do:
Our immediate goals are twofold:
1) To rebrand Attucks as an African American, who is remembered for his noble contribution to the American history of the patriotism. He was a true American "Revolutionary War Patriot" for "Human Rights";
2) Create within the City of Boston a fresh public/private, 21st-century view of Crispus Attucks, which is one of multicultural global diversity, inclusion, liberty, and freedom for all mankind.
The 21st Century Commemoration and History of Crispus Attucks Day: Details the 21st century timeline of the famous "Boston Massacre Martyr" and Revolutionary War Patriot, Crispus Attucks. It is rich with untold information, that very few people in America, including the city of Boston, are cognizant of.
