African-Amer­i­can mu­seum opens

The Na­tional Mu­seum of African Amer­i­can His­tory and Cul­ture opened Satur­day, Sept. 24, with lots of cel­e­bra­tions as well as peo­ple from this area who felt the im­por­tance of be­ing in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. And, there were peo­ple who trav­eled to be here for this event. Mr. Lon­nie G. Bunch III said, “The African-Amer­i­can ex­pe­ri­ence is the lens through which we un­der­stand what it is to be an Amer­i­can.”

There was a beau­ti­ful pre­sen­ta­tion on tele­vi­sion for peo­ple who could not get to the event, es­pe­cially since you had to ap­ply in ad­vance for the lim­ited num­ber of free tick­ets. In fact the tick­ets for en­ter­ing the mu­seum have been is­sued for sev­eral weeks to get in­side. But there were lots of peo­ple out­side in se­lected ar­eas en­joy­ing the mu­sic, singing and speeches for this won­der­ful event.

Yes, his­tory was made. I can re­mem­ber as a child how my fa­ther made it a point to take us on the pub­lic trans­por- tation — street cars, in fact — to get a good seat on the curb as we watched the many pa­rades that also made his­tory.

Busi­ness part­ners needed

My daugh­ter-in-law, Towanda Jones, asks some very in­ter­est­ing ques­tions. She asks are you tired of work­ing from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.? Are you look­ing for a way to start a new op­por­tu­nity? Or do you just want to be your own boss?

She and her busi­ness part­ners are on a na­tional build­ing mis­sion. They be­long to a con­sor­tium of busi­ness own­ers and en­trepreneurs and part­ner with a se­ries of com­pa­nies in the busi­ness of cus­tomer ac­qui­si­tion. They “are ex­pand­ing in the MDV as well as na­tion­ally and are en­gi­neer­ing a fi­nan­cial move­ment like the coun­try has never seen.” They are look­ing for “open minded peo­ple, suc­cess ori­ented, highly am­bi­tious and coach­able peo­ple.” If you are in­ter­ested in this busi­ness op­por­tu­nity, she asks you to call her, Towanda Jones, on 240-476-8509.
