Young and old, black and white, students and teachers, university administrators and community members all enjoyed the celebration of the artistic accomplishments and contributions of black Americans.

Mr. Alex Rosner's moving presentation to our students at Bucknell University made such an important difference in their understanding of the human dimension of the Holocaust. Mr. Rosner's shared his and his family's pain, but he also helped students understand their responsibility to always do the right thing--a message that resonated strongly with them. I am so grateful to Mr. Roser for his willingness to share his experiences for making it possible for my students and others to learn first hand about this terrible period in history. Thank you, Peter and PDA for all your help!
