COMMUNITY BOOKS & BREAKFAST SOCIAL

Hello Everyone!
If you are interested in being involved in local issues that affect black people's lives, then this event is for you. I've attended several meetings and love to environment, people, and freedom of not having to worry about being judged for what is said. Mrs. T is great with the ice breaker activities.
