“1960 What? 1960 Who…” Gregory Porter
Griot Vanessa Johnson talked about activist Ella Baker during a lunch break for the Cold Case Justice Initiative Civil Rights Conference on Friday.
Sometimes the best part of a conference is at the edges, in-between the forums and formal program. Yesterday during the lunch break of the Cold Case Justice Initiative’s Looking Back, Moving Forward: 50th Anniversary Conference a rich meaningful and dialogue broke-out. This multi-generational instructional chat featured students, educators, panel participants and attorneys. It was preceded by a lunchtime story-telling piece by Vanessa Johnson.
And truth be told, the conversation was sparked by a challenge laid down by Mr. Gil Caldwell.
