river run law black history month

As proud members of our community, River Run Law values involvement in its local events. We truly enjoy interacting with our neighbors and fellow Virginians. 

Further, as dedicated stewards of justice, our attorneys are humbled to participate in teaching and learning events within the community, including celebrating and honoring Black History Month. We believe that February is an important time to reflect and learn.

In a culmination of these values, River Run Law is pleased to have had the opportunity to partner with Richmond Public Schools in their Black History Month activities by providing copies of Barack Obama’s “Of Thee I Sing,” to an RVA Schools elementary class.

This children’s book is an important depiction of the diversity across the U.S. The receiving class’s teacher, Mrs. Carpenter, said she wanted to give the students this book because it shows how our country is “made up of people of every kind.” Plus, the former president is Mrs. Carpenter’s school’s namesake, so the book choice is even more meaningful to the receiving students.

Our attorneys are happy to be part of encouraging acceptance and understanding among the next generation of students. We are grateful and humbled by our experience virtually discussing this book and Black History Month with Mrs. Carpenter’s class.
