Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

I would like to thank the Council for this honor and in particular Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown and Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell. They have been very supportive of my mission of informing children that one-tenth of Washington's Army was composed of men of color. And my book fortunately was -- a grant was given by the Daughters of the American Revolution, which was matched by my sorority by $10,000, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, to place the book in all of the school libraries in the Philadelphia area. That includes the public schools, the non-public schools, and the charter schools.

Thank you very much.
