Washington, DC The Quander Historical and Educational Society Inc. (QHES), led by its founder, author and historian Rohulamin Quander, is raising funds on GoFundMe to underwrite the first publication of a comprehensive, detailed historical account of the internationally known Quander family, one of the oldest documented African American families in the country.

Until now, there has been no primary single source encapsulating this fascinating, multi-century story. This narrative will tell the story of the Quanders over the generations, their successes and travails. Here is a family that has produced four U.S. Army generals, three of them West Point graduates; two Tuskegee Airmen serving in World War II, and the first national president of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

Like many African American families, they have known the despair of involuntary enslavement. This powerful story of perseverance is an inspiration. NOW is the time that the Quander Family's documented and distinguished history of sustained achievement must be shared with everyone. 

As 2019 marks the 400th anniversary of the first captive Africans being sold into slavery in the British North American colony at Jamestown, Virginia, it is important that this poignant, inspiring, expressly American story be told.

Rohulamin Quander is a retired Senior Administrative Judge for the District of Columbia, and a 55-year member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity.

The Quander Historical and Educational Society Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C. Any financial contribution made to this campaign is tax-deductible.
