Black History Month Celebration

Joy DeGruy

Renowned researcher, educator, author and presenter, Dr. Joy DeGruy will join us with a presentation titled The Power of Art. She is an ambassador for healing and a voice for those who’ve struggled in search of the past, and continue to struggle through the present. Those who have experienced Dr. Joy in person, can tell you that they have been “stimulated, enlightened and inspired.”

*note Saturday – not Sunday. Different day of the week!
