In case you missed anything, here is more information about the Harrison Museum of African American Culture Speaker Series, Hearing Our Voices: Still We Rise.
Located on the 2nd Floor of Center in the Square, The Harrison Museum of African American Culture, Inc. (HMAAC) is a cultural and educational institution committed to advocating, showcasing, preserving and celebrating the art and history of African Americans for Roanoke Valley citizens and visitors. Our purpose is to cultivate awareness and appreciation of the significant contributions of people of African descent.
Beginning February 16, 2021 The Harrison Museum of African American Culture will host a four-week virtual Speaker Series focusing on important issues facing our community today, as we continue to heal from the coronavirus pandemic and the racial divides that threaten to tear us apart.
Each week experts in their respective fields will lead conversations on a variety of topics ranging from elevating Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts in various sectors; Healthcare Disparity in the African American Community, curing equity in education; as well as a panel discussion with local young adults whose talent has attracted national recognition.
The speaker series is free for the public to attend and at the end of the speaker’s 20 to 30 minute presentation the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions. We welcome you to save the date and join in the conversation.
It is our desire that this Series will inform and educate all who attend, serve as a catalyst to dive into difficult conversations, and generate solutions to afford better opportunities for our entire community.
