From the desk of Dr. Enid C. Pinkney, founder of the Historic Hampton House Community Trust, we will continue what has to be done to prepare for the information badly needed for a successful kitchen. We will strive through our historical values and through the arts to create and welcome the arts and culture into their lives. Hampton House activities and services will appear to a cross-section of families without regard for race, educational or economic background. We will focus on Southeast Florida residents seeking to expand their knowledge about the history and contribution of African Americans and other cultures to development of the South Florida community. Through visual performing arts, through historical displays and authentic experience, we will serve a segment of the South Florida Market, primarily Miami-Dade County and reach the entire Southeast Florida region.

The article: killing in the project” has brought back memories of how the project was back in my day around the 1928 year. I remember crying at birth in a shot gun house, while my mother tried to close my big mouth before my daddy slapped me side my big head. I notice looking around for my brother who was running in and out of our three bed room house trying to catch the baseball. Then the house became noisy while I tried to swallow the fish and rice given to me. This went on for a few years and our mother told us to pack get on a truck which was backing up to the vacant house. We could not talk just look around and tried to get some information where were going. Finally, I noticed a sign that read Ft. Lauderdale. It was shocking for us to move from a three bedroom house to a smaller house. Yet, we absorbed the change in silence waiting for the next move, which was registering for Dillard High School.

The three wise men came to Nazareth bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. They were for there for the baby who would be born. When the baby was born she wrapped him in swaddling clothes and placed him in a manger, because there was no room available in the inn. Dr. Brown picked up “And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over there their flocks at night.” An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But, the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.”
