It will be held at the Lincoln Dr. Blackwell-FlanaganCommunity Center on October 24th. We will start gathering at 5:30 and the program will start at 6:00 p.m.There will not be a dinner and there is no charge. We hope to partner with the NAACP and light refreshments will be provided. One of the goals of the Tallahassee League is to increase the diversity of our members and to include more of the community in our programs.
Our panel will consist of Dr. Carol Weissert, League member and FSU professor, Dr. Rhonda Blackwell-Flanagan, principal of Hartsfield Elementary School, and Joy Bowen, member of the Leon County School Board. There will be an opportunity for questions from the audience. Please mark your calendar and plan to participate in this extremely important discussion.
