Things really got started with the Matthew A. Henson statue unveiling and Arctic Exploration Presentation on April 6. The event featured the Sacred Heart School children's choir, singing an original composition by Dick Wolf, the Jazz Band from Camden Creative Arts High School, an original dance performed by Kingsley Ibeneche and choreographed by Arthur Leo Taylor and featured speakers such as Camden COO Judge Davis,Monsignor Michael Doyle and John Giannotti. It was attended by at least 300 people, with many more having to be turned away. However, this event would have never got off the ground if not for support from Heart of Camden CDC ,the Waterfront South Community, South Jersey Port Corporation and the hard-work provided by a team of Americorps*NCCC volunteers.
