We Rise

We joyously celebrated Black History with song and dance–both modern and African traditional–poetry, stirring readings, a visit from Soul Train’s Don Cornelius plus a dance line, several solos–including a powerhouse offering of the Black national anthem, and a snappy fashion show that wowed the onlookers. In short, we had a blast honoring the black nation that has made this country the envy of the world. As a nursing facility, we are thankful for the history that is being made here everyday with our African American stakeholders.
