“Saidi said she never imagined that in the U.S. she would be growing her own food, as she did in the Congo. ‘When I came here, I said, ‘Oh my God, I don’t know (if in) America, if they have fresh food,’” she said. “Yes, they are also farming, and I said ‘Oh my God,’ it was exciting.'”

The Will to Adorn
During the summer of 2013, AACC student staffer Brittney Hopgood and God’s Gang Director Carolyn Thomas participated in The Will to Adorn: African-American Diversity, Style and Identity; one of three programs featured in the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the national mall in Washington DC. The Will to Adorn showcased the distinctive ways in which diverse African American
identities are expressed through attire and adornment. The festival program was an outgrowth of a larger Smithsonian Youth Access research initiative, which enables Smithsonian educators to work with community hosts and organizations that serve underserved and adjudicated youth.
