MBK & MSK Visit Washington D.C.
On June 2, the My Brother's Keeper and My Sister's Keeper traveled to Washington D.C. for an end-of-year educational trip.
They first visited Howard University, the historically black research university, located in the Shaw neighborhood of D.C. Students toured the campus and learned more about the opportunities available to them if they one day chose to attend.
Following the university, students spent the day at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African-American History and Culture. Students explored the timeline section of the museum that takes visitors from the first slave ship landings in America to present day. They also learned more about the cultural contributions of African-Americans throughout American history.
The final stop was at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. The words of Martin Luther King Jr. are etched into the walls that surround the 30-foot high statue of King.
