BELL OF PENNSYLVANIA CELEBRATES BLACK HISTORY MONTH

 BELL OF PENNSYLVANIA CELEBRATES BLACK HISTORY MONTH
 PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- "Recognizing and understanding


cultural differences" is the underlying theme for exciting and innovative activities under way at Bell of Pennsylvania in celebration of Black History Month.
 From free admission to the Afro-American Historical & Cultural Museum to organizing an African-American Cuisine food fair at their work location, Bell of Pennsylvania employees have had an opportunity to broaden their awareness of the contributions made by African Americans and their cultural heritage.
 "The challenge corporate America faces today is learning how to tap the full potential of all employees," said Robert M. Valentini, president and chief executive officer of Bell of Pennsylvania.
 "And that work force is changing drastically -- in gender, color, nationality, age, and in cultural points of view. Organizations that learn to respect and value different cultural perspectives will be ahead in the 21st century."
 Building on the theme of "Seeing the World Through the Eyes of Others," Bell of Pennsylvania has scheduled an art reception on Feb. 24, featuring the works of Philadelphia's City Center Academy high school students.
 Artist and instructor Vivian Constance Dow will share an overview of the school's art philosophy, which empowers children to express themselves through their art.
 The public is cordially invited to the reception from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the lobby of Bell of Pennsylvania's headquarters building located at 16th and Arch streets, Philadelphia.
 The artwork will be on display through March 4.
 City Center Academy is a co-educational, non-profit, independent school whose purpose is to offer a superior college preparatory education for grades 9 through 12 at an investment most city families can afford. The school is located at 1701 Delancey Place.
