Celebrate Black History Month with the District of Columbia Housing Authority.

Families are invited to come to the Southwest Family Enhancement and Career Center on Saturday, February 23 from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to celebrate and honor African-Americans who shaped  the United States’ and global history.

There will be a youth painting class, storytelling, drumming, a bounce house, and educational displays of prominent African-Americans. There also will be a fashion contest with prizes for the person dressed the best in traditional African attire. Other prizes and give aways will be held throughout the event.

Information and applications to some of DCHA’s programs, such as Family Self-Sufficiency, Workforce Development, and the Summer Youth Employment Program will be available among other resources.

Cookout-style food will be served at this uplifting, first ever DCHA event.

Please RSVP for the youth painting class at (202) 535-1000 or email ORSprograms@dchousing.org.
