Each of them shared their individual stories and the requirements of the fields that were represented.  The young men had a great time interacting with the presenters and learned a lot about how and why they chose their professions.  

The Concerned Black Men of Richmond celebrated Black History Month with a visit to the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia.  The activity was held on Saturday, February 11th.  We were given a guided tour by Mary Lauderdale tour loaded with inspirational stories that are often untold and or forgotten.
