Black History Month Feature: Making History Happen
Making History Happen | AT&T
AT&T is celebrating Black History Month by helping three volunteer teams give back in the areas of health, arts or technology. Throughout the month of February the teams competed by building their organizations and sharing this progress online.
The CV team was very excited to see Team WriteGirl. Write Girl is a creative writing and mentoring organization in Los Angeles that helps teen girls discover and express their creative voices.
