Literacy Lessons

The importance of reading is maintaining its place at the top of the priority list for schoolchildren. At James Matthews Elementary in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, administrators and staff are making the grade with their concentrated effort to teach reading skills.

The Latest

TheVillageCelebration is an online magazine dedicated to reporting stories that highlight the rich tradition of triumph, perseverance, and faith of African-Americans. Every day African-Americans are succeeding, living their dream, moving on up. And we want to share it with others. Welcome to TheVillageCelebration. Everyone likes a good story. Victory from defeat. Good over evil. Something from nothing. Problem is… we rarely read it, hear it, or see it. The news of the day records the American experience with a broad brush, painting a picture focused on that which dominates the daily landscape. The disasters, the politics, the wars. But look closely, life is being lived in and around these headlines.
