NAF Atlanta Chapter Black History Month Program – Civil Rights and Social Justice

March 1 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$25.00
Netherland American Foundation

The event will also be livestreamed.

To close off Black History Month, we’ve lined up an exciting evening with special guests, speakers, music, happy hour, and more. The theme of the evening will be an exploration of the history of civil rights and social justice in Atlanta, and a discussion around some of our shared integration efforts and perspectives from across the Atlantic.

While Atlanta is known as “The Cradle of the Civil Rights Movement,” there is much more to the story than most of us know. Keynote speaker Nathaniel Smith, CEO of the Partnership for Southern Equity, will help us explore the history of the community most of us now call home.

Then, Jennifer Tosch, CEO of Black Heritage Tours Amsterdam, will share her insights on how a deeper understanding of the past helps redefine Dutch culture.

Following the keynote address, Trevor Williams, Managing Editor of Global Atlanta, will moderate an interactive panel around the American and Dutch perspectives on civil rights and social justice. Joining him on stage will be Nathaniel Smith, Jennifer Tosch, Yvonne K. David, Executive Director of The Pippin Project|HaulDash, and Laurens van Doeveren, Deputy Consul General for the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Don’t miss this special evening, which will include musical performances by Miranda Reshaw, and be sure to join us before the program starts at 5:30 pm for an opportunity to enjoy a beverage of your choice and mingle with other guests!
