BIRTHDAYS OF THE MONTH


 This month, we will commemorate the birth (January 15, 1929) and lifetime work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. As always, it will be celebrated in grand fashion. On Friday, January 16th, we will spend the day hearing his speeches, watching videos about his life, singing freedom songs, and having a mock “sit-in” and freedom march




We celebrate the birthday of our beloved ancestor

Mr. Johnie D. Wilson who was born on January 3, 1919 and transitioned on January 4, 2006. He was a community leader, activist and Roots neighbor.

Mr. Wilson served on the Roots ALC Council of Elders and was a founding

Member of the Roots PCS Board of Trustees. Since

1990, until his transition he continued to be a faithful Roots benefactor.


We also celebrate the birthday of our present-day Shero, Michelle Obama born January 17, 1964 in

Chicago, Illinois. The wife of the nation’s first Black President, Barack Obama, she is America’s

First Black First Lady. Mrs. Obama is a graduate of Harvard Law School and has been involved with many causes including Childhood Obesity, Equal

Education for Girls, Support for Military Families,

Homelessness and Public Service.

Roots graduates are doing well in high School, College and in their Career. The are Real Facts of Admission not PARCC Predictions.
