A Celebration of African American Food and Culture
This year we are not able to come together in the same way we normally like to do to celebrate Black History Month and the many contributions of African Americans to our local community and the United States (see below for education resources), but we are excited to partner with JBD Catering and Events to bring you a traditional soul food dinner for free! Pick up is at JBD Catering and Events right next to Friendship Court at 313 2nd Street SE Suite 100 (the Glass Building).
Dinner includes fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, roll, and a cookie.
Free to all Clark Elementary School students and families that sign up by deadline by Friday, Feb 5, 12PM. Sponsored by the Clark PTO!
If you missed signing up, JBD Catering & Events is running a Free Meal Friday each week 2-3:30PM

Charlottesville / Albemarle Black History
(In no particular order)
Virginia Foundation for the Humanities: Changing the Narrative Charlottesville received funding to coordinate the development of a community-generated, place-based, Virginia Studies curriculum and online resource for Charlottesville City Public Schools that reflect the city’s complex and diverse local narratives. Participants are holding monthly Teacher’s Education programs to acquaint teachers with moments in Charlottesville’s local history and the way in which this history relates to the larger racial narratives of the country. A five-month curriculum plus meetings designed to cover local history from enslavement to the integration of Charlottesville’s public spaces are now underway. Teachers will receive training on how to integrate this information so that it is in alignment with Virginia Standards of Learning.
