The Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Mystic & Noank Library and Kevin Booker Jr. are presenting our second annual Celebration of Black History Month Program.
Our first celebration in 2021 took place outside in Mystic River Park on February 19. We encouraged students and the community to read from their own writings or from works by black authors, that have moved them. The program was hosted by Kevin Booker, Jr., a Mitchell College and Connecticut college professor who also offers training in leadership and diversity, equity and inclusion though his company, Booker Empowerment, LLC.
In planning the second Celebration for Saturday, February 11 from 10am to 12:30pm, we are again inviting students to speak and Kevin Booker Jr. will again be the emcee.
