During the week of school break in Black History Month, we will take 20 middle-school children, each accompanied by a parent, to Washington, D.C. We will have a greet and meet with Civil Rights leaders in Congress, and arrange a guided tour of the Black History Museum. This will be an overnight trip.
The purpose is two-fold: First, education on our civil right movement, and the travails of those who laid the path for us and the legendary figures in that struggle. Second, permit parent-child bonding. We will give priority to children growing up in single-parent households going with their non-custodial parent, so as to enhance their opportunity for bonding.
