Speaker Series

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.
