This fall, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design will present 30 Americans, a wide-ranging survey of works by many of the most important African-American contemporary artists of the last three decades.  By bringing  seminal  artistic  figures together  with younger and  emerging artists, the exhibition explores artistic influence across generations and sheds light on issues of racial, sexual and historical identity. Often provocative and challenging, 30 Americans at the Corcoran explores ideas central to the American experience.

More than 300 children enjoyed free football instruction at the 9th Annual Positive Choices (PCI) Football Camp. Held for the first time on the historic campus of Howard University, campers went through individualized drills lead by members of the Friendship Collegiate Academy High School Football team as well as local players from the NFL.

“Sports are the carrot we use to draw the kids in. Once they are here, we are to teach them the importance of making good decisions on and off the field. The lessons they learn today are transferable to other sports as well as the other parts of their life,” PCI Founder Aazaar Abdul-Rahim said.

One very special guest who stopped by to encourage students was DC Mayor Vincent Gray. He reminded students that not everyone has to be a professional athlete in order to benefit from sports.  “I know sports can help you develop friendships that will last much longer than your playing days,” he said.

Angie Ange, local radio personality from 93.9 WKYS, spoke briefly to the kids before the professional athletes and coaches, including Chicago Bears Quarterback Matt Gutierrez and University of California Assistant Coach Tosh Lupoi, spoke about the importance of academics and surrounding yourself with positive people.

NFL Player Attendees (coaches):

Travis Ivey - Cleveland Browns
Jameel McClain - Baltimore Ravens
Matt Gutierrez- Chicago Bears
Tosh Lupoi- Defensive Line Coach/ University of Cal
Taj Smith - Indianapolis Colts
Nate Bussey - New Orleans Saints
Rashad Carmichael - Houston Texans
Curtis Brinkley - San Diego Chargers
Tyrod Taylor - Baltimore Ravens
