US Education Sec. to Attend 24th Black Family Reunion

 

 
 
        U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will attend the National Council of Negro Women Inc. Black Family Reunion Celebration at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12, on the National Mall. He will read a book to children and stress to parents the importance of their involvement in their children’s education.
 
        Now in its 24th year, the Black Family Reunion Celebration is a three-day cultural event celebrating traditional values in the African American family, including education and parental involvement, and mentoring. The event is the brainchild of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) Chair and President Emerita Dorothy Height, who, in l957, was elected fourth national president of NCNW and served until l998. Founded in 1935, the Council’s mission is to lead, develop and advocate for women of African American descent as they support their families and communities.
