    THAT'S GREAT...WONDERFUL. I'm proud of them all.

    They had teams like that in my high school. I never joined them because I was the athletic type. But, I met a woman in the State of Washington who participated in such events. She was an undergrad and I was a grad student. Her family went to a function some Black folks were putting on and she was asked to perform. I never knew she had this talent. EVERYONE there was blown away. She had women crying all over the place. She did a scene of a slave speaking of her children. I couldn't believe how believable she was and she affected everone in that audience that day. She was awesome.

    I'm glad that these students have found something to be proud of...and something that they can participate in that will build their self-confidence and self-esteem.

    peace
