Avoice Welcomed Carver Elementary Students
As part of its ongoing efforts to help students gain a better understanding of the contributions African Americans have made, the Avoice Virtual Library Project recently hosted fifth-graders from Carver Elementary School in Richmond, VA.
During their visit, students learned about the CBCF’s efforts to advance the global black community and the separate work of members of the Congressional Black Caucus. The trip was facilitated in partnership with the New Y-CAPP, Youth Challenged Advised & Positively Promoted.
