This event will feature award-winning journalist Ed Gordon, author of the new book “Conversations in Black: On Power, Politics, and Leadership” which, according to the publisher, “takes a comprehensive and unvarnished look at the state of Black America. The book’s author, renowned journalist Ed Gordon, invites readers to #jointheconversation about creating new narratives for people of color. Noted as a skilled interviewer, Gordon brings together a diverse group of today’s most prominent African American voices for a (virtual) gathering to discuss where African Americans and the country go from here.” Mr. Gordon will facilitate a panel with local residents to explore subjects that embrace critical questions in today’s charged climate, and about people of color’s continuing quest for equality.
