Black History Month 2017

Black History Month was very special to me this year. I was honored to present my presentation at a library, high school, mentoring program, church and city hall. Each event was a success.

I had a great time talking about my experience visiting, sleeping in slave cabins and my display of replicas of artifacts that I see at slave plantations. I also enjoyed talking to adults who talked about their family history and their ancestors who were enslaved.

Prove Them Wrong (PTW) Mentoring Program.

Part of my exhibit is to get all students involved.

The expression on the mentee's faces are priceless.

I love April. She is graduating this year going to college.

Mayor of Country Club Hills, James Ford. Him and other mentors gave me a huge donation. I'm so appreciative and the donation will definitely help me enhance my exhibit for future presentations.

I enjoyed talking to the mentees. They asked many questions and they want to participate in overnight stay in a slave cabin this summer!!!!!
