Board members present were Anita Starling, Willie Howard, Sandra Thompson, James Brown, Virginia Brown, Kenya Sekoni, and Tracey Wallace. Not present at the meeting was Lucy Lacy.
We are very pleased to welcome Dr. Kenya Sekoni to the Board of Directors of the Fred Douglass Community Development Corporation. We anticipate that her skills and experience will be an asset to our Board and we look forward to working with her in the near future. We want to thank Dr. Sekoni for her willingness to serve our board.
Congratulations to our first FDCDC Board Black History Champion,
James Brown. We had our first Black History Month challenge contest played by the FDCDC board members. The board members were asked four questions that were taken from the article, "Little Known Black History Facts." The winner answered the most questions and won $100.00 to be donated to the FDCDC in his name. James Brown won by answering this question, Who was the first African American female pilot? He answered, "Bessie Coleman."
