This seems like an event worth attending.
The U.S. Embassy Kingston in celebration of Black History Month is hosting Dr. Mae Jemison in Jamaica! She is a NASA astronaut, she actually went into orbit aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavor in 1992 and more relevant to Black History month – she was the first African-American female ever admitted into the astronaut training program.
I would love to hear what she has to say about her life, growth and accomplishments. If you can, this seems like an event you should try to make.
The event is FREE.
However, according to the Embassy’s Facebook page “seats are for this event are extremely limited.”
How do you get in?
If interested: send an email to KingstonFacebook@state.gov with:
1) Your name as it appears on your government-issued identification
2) Your phone number
3) Your email address
I actually signed up and it was pretty hassle free. I recommend you email as early as possible – maybe you can catch the last spot!
