CBCF Presents The Avoice Heritage Celebration
Wednesday, February 15, 2012
The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF) will continue its commemoration of Black History Month by hosting its third annual Avoice Heritage Celebration (Avoice: African American Voices In Congress) from 7:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m., February 15th, at the Eatonville Restaurant, 2121 14th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20009.
The intimate evening will also serve as a fundraiser for Avoice. The Avoice Virtual Library is a premier source of information about historical and contemporary African-American policy issues important to researchers, academics, educators and students. It is the only virtual library project of its kind.
The celebration, a reception and awards program, will honor organizations for their work in preserving African-American legislative history and for their commitment to cultivating minority civic engagement, public discourse on African-American history, or the preservation of important historic artifacts through philanthropic or programmatic support.
