Sample Page

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

A Taste of African Heritage @ Free Library of Philadelphia: Culinary Literacy Center
May 31 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Diabetes is not a part of African heritage.
Neither is heart disease.

Together, we can reclaim health by reclaiming history.

Traditionally, African American ancestors ate a delicious, plant-based diet that was high in flavor and naturally low in cholesterol, sugars, and excess sodium. A Taste of African Heritage is a six-week cooking program that brings this savory traditional way of eating back to life to improve health and wellbeing.

Many of today’s healthiest foods have their roots in African heritage — leafy greens, sweet potatoes, millet, and okra to name a few. Join us for this powerful program, as we reconnect to those foods and a long lineage of healthy eating that has the power to heal and inspire.

This FREE six-lesson nutrition and cooking program is presented by Oldways on Wednesday evenings, May 10th through June 14th, 2017. Participants are encouraged, but not required to attend all six workshops.

Daddy Does my Hair is about challenging the stereotype of dads only taking boys to the barber shop and moms doing the girl’s hair. It’s a great time for fathers and daughters to bond. It’s about self-love, self-worth, and self-care.

Family Program – An Immigrant’s Journey @ Delaware Historical Society
Jun 17 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Between 1892 and 1954 twelve million immigrants entered the U.S. through Ellis Island alone. Today, descendants of those immigrants account for almost half of the population of the U.S.

On Saturday, June 17, 2017 from 1:00-3:00 pm, the Delaware History Museum invites families to envision the lives of 19th-century immigrants. The family program, An Immigrant’s Journey, asks guests to contemplate what it must have been like for immigrants to leave their homes and make a long journey by sea to a new country where the language and customs were new.

Three hands-on stations allow participants to consider what 19th-century immigrants would pack in a bag for a long voyage and to identify everyday objects that would help a newcomer to better understand American culture versus objects that represent Old World customs and traditions.

Participants are welcome to tour Delaware: One State, Many Stories, a comprehensive exhibition presented in a complementary dual format. Discover Delaware introduces a general overview of the state’s history from the 1600s to the present. Journey to Freedom features the history of African Americans from the first known African brought to Delaware by the Swedes in the 1600s called “Black Anthony,” to Delaware Poets Laureate, brothers Nnamdi Chukwuocha and Al Mills.

Program fee is included with museum admission.

Adults $6.00; Seniors (65+)/Military/Student (with i.d.) $5.00; Children (3-18) $4.00
