We celebrated 20 years of life with AAERO! August 9-11, 2019 AAERO hosted special events at Melchor-Quick Meeting House in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
AAERO Memorial Awards initiated in 2000 at Bennett College continues with two awards in August 2019. The first Living Legacy Award by Beulah Melchor Quick was given to a Fielding University graduate student.
Dr. Millicent E. Brown, Director of the Somebody Had to Do It project, talked about her experience as one of the desegregation pioneers. These interviews are now part of the digital archives at the College of Charleston, South Carolina.
Seventeen “Treasures of Our Heritage” were recorded in interviews and public conversations about their lives, 2002 – 2016 in Fayetteville, NC. These interviews will be available on the AAERO website in 2020.
Students have served AAERO in partnership with the North Carolina Central University Office of Community Engagement and Service. Others have earned internship credit in courses relevant to the AAERO mission.
Coming soon: New volunteer opportunities for Fayetteville State University Students.
Look for updates to be posted on the AAERO blog in 2020!
