*Cee Cee’s HISTORICAL RESEARCH FOR SPEECHES &  THEATRICAL PRESENTATIONS

Cee Cee is not only an avid, qualitative researcher of history, but she takes that history and creates eye-opening historical speeches and presentations. She exposes the lesser-mentioned and hidden figures of African-American (as well as Afro-Canadian, Hawaiian, and West African) history whose narratives and contributions are many times over looked but are incredibly powerful and invaluable. Cee Cee sings in many styles from Gospel and Broadway to operatic arias and includes the old Negro spiritual songs in her presentations. She explains the educational depth of the lyrics and even teaches the  the various methods of escape through symbols on her handmade educational Freedom Seekers Quilt. Enjoy the edutainment of Cee Cee Michaela.

Note: This beautiful Victorian-style building has gorgeous turrets (towers) and terra cotta crenellations and friezes much like the architecture of the buildings or castles in England. Thank you, John T. Mitchell Jr. for lobbying ten years, in order for this building to be constructed by African Americans (Armstead Walker) for our African-Americans in the armed services. In 1895, the armory served as headquarters of the First Battalion Virginia Volunteers Infantry and African-American soldiers during WWII.
