Celebrate Black History with the Roosevelt Club!

On Friday, February 18th, 2022 at 7:30pm our Club will celebrate Black History Month by hosting a speaker from the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (“ASAALH”).  The ASAALH was founded in 1915 by Carter G. Woodson to chronical and preserve Black history and culture. 

The theme for Black History Month 2022 is "Black Health and Wellness".  Our speaker will be Marie Day, a member of the ASAALH Prince George’s County Truth Branch, and a volunteer with WomenHeartHer background in medical technology and her own personal insights on heart disease will offer a perspective to raise awareness and help educate others about prevention strategies.  Thanks to Katy Pape from the club's Programming Committee for arranging this speaker.

The Eleanor & Franklin Roosevelt Club was most fortunate in January to celebrate Martin Luther King’s Birthday with a meaningful presentation provided by our 22nd Legislative Team.  They spoke of his message regarding the civil rights of all Americans, as well as applying these principles to current legislation to improve our quality of life.  

As is the cub’s tradition, we will provide a program dedicated to Women’s History Month in March, and are in the process of putting together a forum featuring our state’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate on Sunday afternoon, April 3rd at 3pm.  

Stay tuned for more details for these events in the Greenbelt News Review or give us a call at (301) 345-9369.
