Happy Black History Month!
Many of you knowÂ andÂ supportedÂ iThings 2 Collard Greens, the summer programÂ I foundedÂ last year in which 52 girls were exposed to the teachings and philosophy of Nannie HelenÂ Burroughs, Mary McLeod Bethune, DorothyÂ HeightÂ andÂ Maggie Lena Walker – four dynamic ancestral African American women of the 20th century.Â Â It was a huge success and we are gearingÂ up for this year!
My son, Corcoran Holt,Â a jazz musician in the tradition of the elders, and a student ofÂ our very own, Dave Yarborough, will be in concert for our annual February fundraiser (which is also an excuse to celebrate my birthday!).Â CorcoranÂ (seeÂ corcoranholt.comÂ )is a very seasoned musician who currently plays and tours with Kenny Garrett, The Heath Brothers and other well known jazz musicians of our time (and of yesteryear!).Â Tickets are onlyÂ $20.00 and the event will be held at Seekers Church on Saturday,Â February 23 from 5:30 – 9:30 pm.
I hope you can join us to hear some good jazz and hear about a back-to-basics life-skills summer experience for girls.
You can contact me at 202-368-8721 or Senghor Baye at 202-256-2518 for tickets. Checks should be made payable to Arts for Our Children, Inc. – the non-profit which sponsors the camp.
Thank you so much for your support!
