  1. This is my aunt Norma. I’ve known her since October 16, 2000. She is a bundle of joy. I love my aunt Norma. I was not aware of how much Black History she represents. She is a true inspiration to me and I “know”, to many others. She is my new “shining example”.

  2. I am currently a teacher at Easton Elementary. I have taught for 23 years but the last 14 have been at Easton. I have had several opportunities to move away but my heart is with this school, these children, and this community . I am and the process of writing to several companies and law firms, asking for donations, in order to send our 5th graders on the first (ever known at Easton) trip to Washington, DC in May. I would very much like the permission of whoever took this picture to allow me to include it in the letter I am sending out. Please please contact me at [email protected].
    P.S. I apologize for the mistakes. This particular site does not allow you to text correctly.

  3. This is my big sister. I remember this particular day very well. This was a momentous event for our immediate family, our community and for the state of NC.
