“African Continuum was very surprised and honored to receive the letter that it would be awarded a $3,500.00 grant from The Black Benefactors Fund, especially since we were one of the initial awardees. It is extremely important that we know African Americans support our work and the services we provide to the Washington, D.C. community. We truly appreciated The Black Benefactors’ financial support and acknowledgement and hope that its members will continue to follow our progress as we expand our reach into the community.” -- JoAnn Williams, Executive Director, African Continuum Theatre Company, Washington, DCread more
