Black History Month: The economic conditions of World War I led to a massive movement of African Americans from the South to the North, known as the Great Migration, one of the largest and most rapid mass internal movements in history - perhaps the greatest not caused by the immediate threat of execution or starvation. In keeping with the 2019 theme “Black Migrations” we are highlighting some of our own STRC family history in the Virgin Islands. (Today’s family highlight - Felipe Ayala)
Feb 10, 2019 - “Christ and the Wall”

My Brother's Workshop Cafe & Bakery
Come support this wonderful outreach program! It is located in Bakery Square.
Hours: Monday-Friday 7 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Saturday & Sunday 8 a.m. - 2 p.m.
My Brother’s Workshop was founded in late 2007 by retired industrial engineer Scott Bradley as a program to provide mentoring, counseling, education, and job training and placement, primarily through teaching woodworking and carpentry. In 2014 Bradley was awarded the National Lewis Hine Award for Service to Children and Youth.
The new MBW Bakery and Cafe will offer a whole new set of opportunities for residents age 16 to 24 by offering training in cooking, baking and hospitality. When MBW first started, the program offered training in plumbing, electrical work and construction to members of the crew, but many said Thursday that the bakery will open up new opportunities.
