Greetings,

The Concerned Black Men of Richmond recognized “Black History Month” by visiting the Black History Museum & Cultural Center of Virginia.  We toured the museum on Saturday February 17th with 12 youth and 9 mentors.

There were 2 floors filled with examples of black men, women and children from Virginia that changed our country as well as the world.  The tour was conducted by Mary C. Lauderdale, the Visitor Services Manager.  She is very passionate and knowledgeable about each exhibit at the center.

There were a number of interactive displays that were fun as well as educational.  The tour lasted roughly an hour and the boys were very engaged.

Ms. Lauderdale shared a very interesting story regarding Arthur Ashe.  She explained how England sent a delgation to Richmond to see what we were doing to commemorate the Silver Anniversary of Mr. Ashe’s Wimbledon victory and that nothing was being done!  She took time to share anecdotes at each of the displays and captured the attention of everyone.

“Hidden Figures” – Black History 2017

The Concerned Black Men of Richmond celebrated Black History Month by attending the movie “Hidden Figures”. It was the incredible story of three brilliant African American women who worked as mathematicians for NASA during the 60’s who were instrumental in helping launch the 1 st American into orbit. There were 17 youth in attendance and we saw it at the Bowtie Cinema’s on the Boulevard. Sam Burleigh II attended (Bruce’s father) as an honorary mentor at the age of 93!

We followed up the movie with a visit to Pizza Hut.
