Powerful Words Bring Black History Month to a Close at NCCF

maxresdefault

NCCF’s Adolescent Services and Family Services Divisions teamed up to commemorate Black History Month with an Open Mic Night at our Bethesda campus. The event featured a showcase of the talent and creativity of agency staff and the clients that we serve. The night was a success and included an array of poets, spoken word artists, oral historians, a stand-up comedian, and even a performance of Langston Hughes poetry by our very own Dr. Sheryl Brissett Chapman. It was truly a community celebration of history, art, and literacy. Special thanks are owed to the clients, families and staff of the Greentree Adolescent Program (GAP), FutureBound Independent Living Program (FILP) and the Greentree Shelter (GTS).
