Afternoon with Author Nahjee Grant @ Hockessin Book Shelf
Sep 23 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Afternoon with Author Nahjee Grant @ Hockessin Book Shelf | Hockessin | Delaware | United States

In 2006 Nahjee took a creative writing course because as a failing student he needed the extra credit to graduate on time. In 2010, after a series of working odd jobs, he changed course to pursue a career as an author. Three years later, his first book went into publication. Seven years later Nahjee has written seven picture books to encourage every child regardless of their age, color, or religion to be comfortable with who they are and gain the confidence to strive for success.

He was host of a daily television show for two years on Main Line Television from 2015 to 2017.

In 2016, Nahjee was presented with the Main Liners Who Give Back Award in recognition of his achievements as a top philanthropist on the Main Line.

Also in 2016 Nahjee founded All Children Equal Success to inspire children to keep from falling behind, pursue their dreams, and motivate them throughout the school year to stay focused on their goals.

Dream Big where Art & Fashion Dream Together @ UD Clayton Hall
Oct 7 @ 12:46 pm – 1:46 pm
It is summer here in Delaware and everyone is at the beach watching the sun go down.  It’s a beautiful view, but fall will soon arrive.  The leaves on the trees will start to turn colors, and we are dreaming of ushering in the fall with a “Dream Big- Where Art & Fashion Dream Together” campaign.
This campaign will shine a spotlight on Delaware’s rich supply of talented local artist and highlights another form of art that does not always get its proper recognition in Delaware: Fashion.  We dream of a campaign that allows artists and fashion designers alike to share their creations in an intimate setting and allows for access to their creative forces we’ve only dreamed of.
Lee Brandon Christopher Studio, a small art studio with the audacity to Dream Big and connect artists and art lovers, will partner with renowned local artists Terrance Vann, Alim  “YesterdayNite” Smith, Marilyn Bauman, Ric Conn, Nicole Kristina and many more.  In conjunction with the University of Delaware’s school of fashion & art, we will feature the “Dream Big” Gala which will be a celebration of art, fashion and scholarship in the heart of our community.  A portion of the proceeds will benefit the University of Delaware’s art and fashion student organizations for additional education and enrichment opportunities.  In addition, a portion of the proceeds will support artistic activities in the City of Wilmington by donating to several organizations that serve low-income families: Northeast Church of Christ, First State Church of Christ and TeenSharp.
The “Dream Big” art and fashion campaign is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated events in the area.

November 2013 the National Association for Black Veterans, Inc. established a 501 (c)(3) non-profit chapter in Delaware. This Delaware affiliate became the ninety-fourth (94th) chapter to join the national umbrella. With original intentions to serve the needs of minority veterans, NABVETS quickly realized a greater need and opened its doors to all veterans.

Annually, Delaware Chapter 94 hosts a fundraising Thanksgiving dinner to raise awareness for veteran issues, connect disadvantaged veterans with an array of community resource, and secure sponsorship for the organization’s programs.

This year’s Anniversary Dinner is held at Kingswood Community Center – 2300 Bower Street; Wilmington, Delaware on November 17, 2017 at 6:00pm.
