Stay Woke with the Oldest and Boldest

Dialogue and Dinner celebrating the NAACP

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the NAACP, is the nation's oldest, largest, and most recognized grassroots-based civil rights organization. For over 100 years, the NAACP has advocated for civil rights, campaigned for equal opportunity and mobilized voters through the United States.

Stay Woke with the Oldest and Boldest” brings the community together for a dialogue and dinner that will explore the NAACP's history and legacy. Join us, and engage with experts and peers and connect with local chapter leadership to learn how to get involved
