LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Informer Sports Page Is Fantastic

I just love The Washington Informer Newspaper. It is one of the real treasures we have living in the DMV. The other thing I love just as much is seeing the faces of Washington Redskins fans after a loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Now that is a real treat! Some of my best friends are Redskins fans and I just love watching the Dallas game with them. This has to be one of the greatest sports rivalries. Watching them go through all of the agony just makes it all so very pleasing. Then when I picked up The Informer and saw all of those great photographs by your staff photographer, John DeFreitas, from the game, it just put the topping on the cake, and how sweet it was! Keep up the good work and “What about them ‘Boys!”

Shiloh Baptist Program Focuses on Youth

With all of the excitement over the opening of the wonderful new Museum of African American History and Culture, several related events were somewhat obscured by the main event. Last Sunday evening (Sept. 18), an amazing program was presented at Shiloh Baptist Church here in the District. It featured African drummers and dancers and stilt walkers, all of whom were children — yes children. There were other performers as well, including a 200-voice choir, re-enactors, interpretive dancers and more. But the thing that stood out in my mind was that all of those young African-American children had a big part in the program and they carried themselves with a dignity and professionalism seldom seen in that age group. I applaud the adults who trained them and educated them about the history and culture of our people. We need more adults to step up and do the same.
