Black History Month
Saturday, February 24, 1:15 to 2:30 p.m. at the ACCL office
ACCL invites community members to hear directly from the senior tour guide of Cape Coast Castle, Robert Morgan Mensah, on FaceTime and possibly a chance to see the Cape Coast Castle itself. Local community members — including a city councilor-elect, an ACCL intern from UMass Lowell, and others — will share their inspirational stories at the event. They will tell of the resilience they have to overcome struggles and achieve their goals.
