Celebration of African-American History Month at Tbilisi American Corner (February 12)


On February 12, the US Embassy and Tbilisi American Corner organized a discussion with youth and university students on African-American History in the United States.  The event kicked off a series of activities planned to commemorate National African-American History in the United States, which is celebrated every February.  Ambassador Norland introduced Embassy colleagues Jamal Lewis and Chris Floyd who gave presentations on various aspects of African-American History.  Youth from five American Corners — in Akhaltsikhe, Telavi, Rustavi, Batumi and Zugdidi — joined the discussion via web chat.
