NAACP Scholarship Fundraiser Dinner Dance

The Warren/Sussex County Branch of the NAACP invites you to the 2016 Scholarship Fundraiser Dinner Dance, on Saturday, April 23, 2016, beginning at 6:00, ad the Hawk Point Golf Club in Washington.

The Keynote Speaker is Stephanie James Wilson.  Ms. Wilson is the executive director of the New Jersey Amistad Commission, a division of the Department of Education. This groundbreaking, state-mandated educational initiative is tasked with the full infusion and inclusion of African American historical content into New Jersey's K-12 social studies curriculum and statewide social studies standards.  She is a firm believer in the power of the contextualization of history for students, and that artistic, historical, and cultural artifacts are exceptional teaching tools.

She received dual degrees, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a specialization in African American literature, and a Bachelor of Science degree in African American studies from the University of Maryland, College Park.  After receiving her undergraduate degrees, she earned a master's degree from Temple University with a major in African American studies.  She completed her doctoral coursework in African American studies at Temple University.

Tickets are $75 for adults, which includes an NAACP membership, and $35 for students.
