Black History Month – Thriving While Black
February 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Join us as we host a virtual roundtable discussion featuring The Honorable Former Governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick, Cynthia “Cynt” Marshall, CEO of the Dallas Mavericks, DeRay McKesson and Christia Rogers MEd, LPC-S, NCC. These trailblazers in civil rights, sports, politics and business will discuss how they have managed to Thrive While Black and use their platforms to effect change in today’s cultural climate.
As has been virally documented on social media, Black Americans have not been allowed to drive while black, jog while black, and do a host of other basic, everyday human activities because of the color of their skin. In spite of the struggle, they have always found the light at the end of the tunnel. Together, as a community, we will step into that light in fellowship as we reflect on lessons learned and share bits of wisdom amassed to set fire to the path of Thriving While Black!
