My service-learning project with The Brunswick African American Cultural Center (BAACC) has so far been amazing. One of my first tasks was to conduct a tour in Brunswick starting at 1621 Albany Street. I was on my own with a microphone a group of 10 strangers and it was raining the whole time. The fact that people showed up in the rain just to learn about Brunswick’s black history was enough motivation for me to stay and lead the tour. Even though my task was to lead one out of the five groups, this was both challenging and rewarding. The challenge was talking through the portable microphone and reading my note cards in the rain. The reward was learning about Brunswick African American culture. Another reward of mine was being able to spread the knowledge to the attendees of this event.
