On February 19th the Red Hook Youth Court held a small event in recognition of Black History Month. We began our event with a competitive game of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire: Black History Month Edition” to test the knowledge of the members on prominent and influential African American Leaders both past and present. The game was also designed to educate and make the members aware of some influential African American Leaders they may not have been as familiar with such as Hattie McDaniel, Charles Sifford and Carter G. Woodson just to name a few. The members were very competitive and it was exciting to see them be so passionate and attentive to the game and information being given.
|The answer was Lisa Leslie.|
|The answer was Emmett Till.|
Immediately following the game, Youth Court Staff surprised the Youth Court members with a delicious lunch with some traditional soul food dishes. The menu consisted of barbeque chicken, baked macaroni and cheese, green beans, yams, fried chicken, stuffing, corn bread, sweet potato pie and apple pie. The entire meal was prepared and cooked by the Youth Court staff and the members were really appreciative and enjoyed the food.
Knowledge, fun and food is what made this event a great one!
