Mifflin said: "This book shares some of the things we used to go through; they used to have a whipping post in Georgetown; they hanged people in Georgetown; these are the things we were part of. We couldn't go and sit down like everybody else, but because of a grand family, we were told a good name is better than riches." He talked about the community that surrounded all the children who attended the school. https://www.richardallenschoolgeorgetown.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=204066926 204066926 Buffalo Soldiers Motor Cycle Club attended the gala in support of the Richard Allen Coalition https://www.richardallenschoolgeorgetown.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=204066927 204066927 Christie Taylor, left, and Stephanie Shelton perform musical selections during the gala. https://www.richardallenschoolgeorgetown.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=204066928 204066928 Richard Allen School Alumni were honored with commendations from the House of Representatives signed by Ruth Briggs-King.
