Subject: African-American History Month Celebration Hosted by NAACP San Jose/Silicon Valley Chapter on Friday, February 3, 2017 @ 5PM
As you all know, February is African-American History Month. We have received an official invitation from Rev. Moore, the NAACP San Jose/Silicon Valley President to attend the African-American History Month Ceremonial Flag Raising to officially open African-American history month. The data and time is Feb 3rd starting at 5pm at San Jose City Hall in down town, see attached flyer for details. As those who attended our 25th Independence Anniversary Celebration know, Rev. Moore was our guest of honor and gave a great speech. Amanuel Tesfamariam recorded his speech and uploaded to youtube, below is the link. As you can listen at the end, he invited our community and all of us to plan to attend the Feb 3rd event back then and he asked to come wearing traditional dress/clothes. Rev. Moore is a good friend of our community, so lets attend this even in large numbers and show our support. After all this is our history and we are the benefiters of the incredible sacrifice paid by the many African-American generations.
Since the event is at San Jose City Hall in down town and close to our community, for those who can lets meet at our community at 4pm and carpool:
I know the event is on during weekdays and might be hard to meet at 4pm, if you can't make it go straight to City Hall.
Ladies, please wear traditional dress!!
