Day. Mr. Day will show the audience how to save family stories for their descendants and will also demonstrate a plan that everyone can follow to save their own families’ history and stories.
This free workshop will be held at the Long Beach Branch NAACP’s General Membership Sunday, July 17, 2011 from 3:00pm – 4:30pm at Ernest McBride, Sr. Park, 1550 Martin Luther King Blvd., Long Beach CA 90812. This event is a great family activity, appropriate for ages 9 and above.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was formed in 1909 by a group of black and white citizens, in response to injustice that many Americans confronted solely because of race. Today, the NAACP, the oldest and largest civil rights organization in the world, continues to focus major efforts at increasing voter empowerment, educational excellence and individual responsibility, thus creating an infrastructure for economic and social development and new effective ways to develop young leaders.
