Come celebrate some amazing history on February 28 during our 2nd Annual Black History Month Celebration where we will be honoring women who inspire us to be great!
“We are super excited about this event! We wanted to give all of our girls the opportunity to learn about the amazing black women who have paved the way for our future leaders in their respective fields,” said Amber Thorneycroft, GSSGC’s Membership and Community Development Manager.
In addition to the history displays and activities, Girl Scouts is also bringing live entertainment directly to girls.
Some the amazing talent coming to our offices include Makeda Kumasi, founder and artistic director of The Umoja Ensemble of the Inland Empire, and the San Bernardino Pacesetters!
Ms. Kumasi received her Bachelor Degree in Communications from CSU, Fullerton. She also has her Master in Fine Arts in Playwriting from the University of Southern California and her Master in Education from the University of Phoenix.
As the San Bernardino Sun puts it: “Trophy cases don’t lie.”
The San Bernardino Pacesetters, founded in the 1960’s, are an award-winning drill team that has performed in countless competitions and can often be found performing at city parades around San Bernardino. The team has a long and proud tradition of encouraging young women to express themselves in a positive environment.
“From science to dance to sports, we will be celebrating these awesome female role models!” Amber said.
Meet Ms. Kumasi and the Pacesetters in person during our 2nd Annual Black History Month Celebration on February 28, 3-6pm!
