Strengthening the Black Community: Where Do We Go From Here?
Virginia Union University invites you to join us for a two-part virtual event, Strengthening the Black Community: Where Do We Go From Here? on January 25 and 26 from 6:30pm to 8pm/ET. This virtual symposium is sponsored by Living The Dream, Inc., the Bernice E. Travers Foundation, and Virginia Union University, and will feature dynamic moderators and panelists.
This symposium kicks off a series of community conversations aimed at exploring the issues facing the African American community at both local and national levels, as well as the strategies that must be implemented to ensure the realization of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s “beloved community” where there is justice and equality for all.
Join us for this important conversation. Our future depends on it!
