DC Friends of NVLP
DC Friends of NVLP is an opportunity to support NVLP's important work and ensure that the oral histories of African American leaders are recorded; archived at the Library of Congress; and shared with the young people who will lead us tomorrow.
On February 4, 2009, Maxine Baker, Vice Chair of the NVLP Board of Directors, hosted an evening reception at NVLP headquarters to help launch the Founding Chapter of DC Friends of NVLP. NVLP Visionary Dr. Dorothy Height spoke at the event which introduced friends and colleagues of NVLP CEO Cheryl S. Clarke and NVLP COO Cynthia Dinkins to our organization and its programs.
It is a membership program that requires a contribution of $2,000 over two years as well as help in spreading the word about NVLP to the Washington, DC community.
