African American Museum

On March 9th, 2019, I was afforded the opportunity by Brothers to Brothers to go on a trip to the African American Museum located in Philadelphia, PA. This was my first time visiting the museum and what a memorable experience. As I walked around, I was amazed and felt a tremendous sense of pride. Looking at the different portraits, illustrated the beauty of my African heritage, the pain of slavery endured by my ancestors, and the victories of how they prevailed. This trip gave me a deeper sense of who I am as an African American young man and where I'm rooted from. Having this experience has inspired me even more to strive for excellence in all that I do and give back to my community the best of me.
