On Thursday, October 10, as part of our continuing Community Speaker Series, one of our nation’s leading scholars and authors from the Civil Rights Era, Dr. Hasan Kwame Jeffries, will be in Charlottesville. Dr. Jeffries has been a powerful advocate for justice for people of all races through his writings, television appearances, and social media podcasts.
You are cordially invited to join Dr. Jeffries for an extended conversation on why the teaching of hard history is so valuable to the social, emotional, and professional development of students and our communities. Following that conversation, he will be speaking with teachers from the city and county school divisions.
We hope your calendar will allow you to join us at the Jefferson School at 4:30 on Thursday, October 10, for this one-hour conversation. The program is funded in part by Montpelier and the Charlottesville Albemarle Community Foundation.
