Join us for the next program in the Association’s “Private Conversation Series”
“Racial Reconciliation in the Commonwealth: Getting Beyond Politics and Finding Reconciliation and Practical Solutions to Unite and Strengthen Our Commonwealth”
Featuring a Panel Discussion with Governor Bob McDonnell and members of Virginians for Reconciliation.
This year marks the 400th anniversary of the first General Assembly session in the new Virginia colony, but also the arrival of the first enslaved Africans at For Monroe, Virginia in August 1629. A group of Virginia leaders with diverse backgrounds and experiences met in the spring of 2018 to focus on honoring the 400th anniversary of these historic events while sparking new honest dialogue on fostering greater respect and understanding among the races and generating a renewed commitment to relationship-building actions in the Commonwealth. Join our panelists for a discussion on how Virginians from all walks of life can break down barriers of prejudice and mistrust and build a strong foundation to solve problems and provide opportunities for the success of all Virginians.
Panelists are: Governor Bob McDonnell, Janet Vestal Kelly, President of Virginia’s Kids Belong; Paul C. Harris, Senior vice President of Hampton University; Rev. Ben P. Campbell, Pastor Emeritus of Richmond, Hill; BK Fulton, Chairman and CEO of Soulidifly Productions.
