Queen Street, in Kinston, NC.
Junior Achievement is a nonprofit organization that uses hands-on experience to help young people understand the economics of life. In partnership with business and educators, Junior Achievement brings the real world to students, opening their minds to their potential. Junior Achievement programs deal with real issues like workforce readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship, to help young people recognize opportunities in life and take advantage of them.
According to Theresa Williams Bethea, Kinston Promise Neighborhood Director, “Junior Achievement is one of those programs that get our children excited about learning. The hands-on sessions and wealth of information gives our youth important skills that will follow them through life. JA provides its volunteers with all of the materials needed to present to students in grades K-12 in the classroom or afterschool setting.”
In Kinston, Young Women of Promise presented the Junior Achievement Economics for Success program during its 2013 Camp Promise for girls in July. Williams-Bethea has served as a JA consultant in both Charlotte and Kinston, NC.
Junior Achievement of Eastern NC serves students in an 18 county area – Caswell, Chatham, Cumberland, Durham, Edgecombe, Harnett, Johnston, Lee, Lenoir, Moore, Nash, Orange, Person, Pitt, Sampson, Wake, Wayne and Wilson counties.

Song of Solomon covers the years from the 1930's to the 1960's in America. At its center is Macon Dead, the son of a wealthy black property owner, who has been brought up to revere the white world. Macon learns about the tyranny of white society from his friend, Guitar, though he is more concerned to escape the tyranny of his father. While Guitar joins a terrorist group of poor blacks, Macon goes home to the South, lured by tales of buried family treasure. His journey leads to the discovery of something more valuable than gold--his past. The truth about his origins and his true self is not fully revealed to Macon until he and Guitar meet once again in a powerful, and deadly confrontation. Join the Urban Literature Book Club on Tuesday, September 24 at 6:30 p.m. at the Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library.
