Oasis Youth Recap of Spring Break in DC

Oasis Youth Tosin Akinsulire

“For our spring break we went to Washington D.C. We went to the white house and we
took pictures in front of it. After going to the white house we went to a museum, and
we learned about how African Americans freed themselves.
After the video a guy came up on the stage with a soldier suit and he told us about how
the soldier’s act at war. He also showed us the equipment they had and what they ate.
When he finished we got to walk around the museum. When we finished we took a
picture outside and then we walked to the state house.
When we got inside we watched a documentary on the state house history. After we
finished we went with a tour guide and she gave us a tour. When the tour was done we
walked all the way to art museum."

"Virginia is one of the most unique places to visit due to its significance it has played in

our countries history. Washington D.C, in particular, holds the history of our country's

road to democracy. I am African American, and for me to visit the African American

memorials and architecture at the African American War Museum really brightened my

eyes on the impact that African Americans, like me, made to achieve freedom.

I was almost brought to tears when we were taken to the Arlington National Cemetery.

We were above the ground of the place famous people who devoted their lives for this

country was buried. And to process that was very scary. To me, when I saw the ever

breathing fire at the cemetery, it represented America's ever burning determination to

be united as one. I feel very privileged to be apart of the Washington D.C trip hosted

by Oasis International."
