This event has been POSTPONED. A new date for the event will be announced later this month.
This event will showcase the Washington Section, National Council of Negro Women, Inc.’s (WSNCNW) oral history project. The goal of the project is to capture and elevate the untold stories of the women of WSNCNW who laid the foundation of the organization to successfully carry out its mission. Through candid and engaging conversations, these women revealed their own unique personal views about living, working, and volunteering as young Black women in the District of Columbia and surrounding areas at the height of social change.
The panel discussion will identify the issues facing the Washington, DC, community and determine how those issues were addressed by WSNCNW during its existence.
Panelists will include WSNCNW Section Presidents and community partners. Denise Rolark-Barnes, Publisher, The Washington Informer will serve as the moderator. Video production will be provided by Sholape Oriola and team.
The panel discussion will be broadcast via Zoom. The event is free and will be recorded by WSNCNW; however, no participant names or likeness will be used without their permission. No other recording is permissible.
This event is made possible through an Oral History Collaborative Partnership Grant.
