We are so appreciative of the mentors, staff, donors, collaborators, and partners that made last night’s event a success! Alumni and scholars from our eight DC achievement centers shared powerful poetry in front of over 300 people.
Thank you to everyone who attended the event! Here are some of our favorite moments from the night.
Let anyone en el mundo que me cambie por yo ser yo
Brown black and Beautiful viviremos
Para siempre, Afro-Latina Hasta La Muerte
-Sherly, 8th Grade Scholar
Be thankful for what you have
You have more than others
You have a roof over your head
You have clothes on your back – that is Blessed
-Amyah, 5th Grade Scholar
I’ve been broke, bruised.
But by the grace of God, I’m still here.
So once again, what is love?
-Wayne, 8th Grade Scholar
