Do not forget! This is the last class of the session! This one is for parents/guardians and students of BH4YP only. During this culmination class (At Lucy Florence, corner of Degnan and 43rd PLACE), the parents/guardians are invited to join the enrolled students who will receive their certificates. Dr. Kwaku has a message for them. We will also play a brief video from the semester featuring the students. Note: All students are not in the film since they had full schedules and some were not present when filming was done. Special thanks to Eso Won Books and Ben Caldwell, owner of Kaos Studios where the class was held. Many children's activities happen in that space. Check with Ben Caldwell for class offerings.
This week's winner of the Black History Quiz is Travon Tisino who has been a delight to have in the class the last three years.
In case you missed it, here is the letter we sent home last week:
Greetings! Our next class, which is our last, will be held around the corner at the Lucy Florence Coffee House (3351 W. 43rd Street, on the corner), in their auditorium. (Starts the same time, at 10 a.m. sharp!) It is one of the most important cultural locations in the Leimert Park area.
During the last class, we will have one more lesson, and each registered student will receive a certificate of completion. We will also have some wonderful prizes for our no cost raffle for the adults, and our regular student prize of a free meal for two at the marvelous Simply Wholesome Health Food restaurant.
We all want to know where our own family ancestry originated from on the continent of Afrika. Our grand prize (for all who qualify) is a DNA kit from African Ancestry Inc., in Washington D.C. This will allow the winner to know exactly where their place of origin and cultural group on the continent of Afrika, on the matriarchal side of the family.
We look forward to seeing you. There is plenty of metered parking directly across the street. For those who come early, you will see a short film Isidra made of the students in the class. See you then.
