The most recent program was the African Market on February 28th. It was the culminating event for black history month. The children made African themed crafts to sell at the market. They also entertained the audience with African dance routines and spoken word. Parents volunteered at the food table. The event brought smiles and excitement to the children.

This year, Circle Urban Ministries will celebrate 40 years with a fundraising gala.
