The First United Methodist Church Hosts Black History Exhibit
VICTORIA, Texas – Earlier today, people from all over the crossroads came to watch the Black History Exhibit.
Participants discussed the importance of remembering black history, brought paintings from Houston to display, and took a moment to sing together
The kids also took part in a poster board competition where they had to choose a person from the story who influenced them the most.
We spoke with the organizer about why she created this event and who won the billboard competition.
“I did this because I want to help young people stay off the streets, this is my first and I’m going to have more because I have more help to help me with this organization, it’s okay to be a youth organization, helping to keep kids off the streets and out of trouble, ”said Sherilyn Shelton, event organizer.
“Kamala Harris was the first female vice president, black and Asian, and she broke two barriers, black and female,” student Nevaeh Scott said.
Congratulations to all of the kids who entered today’s poster board contest and be sure to be on the lookout for the next black history exhibit in the near future.
