Black History Month Fireside Chat
Registration is now closed (this event already took place).
The aim of the conversation is to create awareness, generate ideas, ignite passion, provoke action and most importantly, celebrate progress.
This year's conversation will focus on Education, focusing on two broad themes:
- The ‘Opportunity Gap’ in the African-American community and how we can advance its access to quality K-12 education and
- The issue of college persistence among African-Americans
‘Statistics indicate that more African-Americans are matriculating at college and universities but still very few are graduating. What are challenges being encountered, how can they be addressed?’
Our hope is that each participant will gain a better understanding of the state of education in our community and feel empowered to become an active agent in its transformation.
