OPEN HOUSE A HUGE SUCCESS!!.
W7AC Open House, Monday, Jan. 21st.
Many friends, supporters, neighbors, and artists stopped by. Greeted by a huge sign-in card, all guests toured the office, conference room and multi-purpose space. Two free lectures were given by community historian Kia Chatmon and the very green Dennis Chestnut. The highlight was the blessing and drumming given by Melvin Deal and his African American Drum Ensemble. The exchange of artful words, smiling children, dolls, and artwork made a festive occasion.
