TJ Jackson and his wife Frances attend the opening and dedication ceremony of the Charles V. Bush Library held at Carden Conejo School on February 24, 2016 in Westlake Village, California.

The library is made possible by a generous grant from the Charles V. Bush Foundation and through a donation from the Carden Conejo Parents’ Association.

The Carden Conejo School establisheded the Charles V. Bush Library on its Westlake Village campus during Black History Month. With “Let Reading Take You Anywhere” as its theme, the new space honors Bush’s legacy by encouraging a joy of reading and cultural diversity.

Charles V. Bush became the first African American to serve as a U.S. Supreme Court page in 1954 – the same year the court desegregated public schools – by Justice Earl Warren. He became the first black graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy and became a highly-decorated officer. He went on to earn advanced degrees from Georgetown University and Harvard University.

Thank you, @tjjackson9! The presence of your beautiful spirit made the day even more special. #CharlesVBushLibrary #CardenConejo
