Tha Brown Urban Mother Partnership supported “AARP New York Black Women Who Lead Panel Discussion”. This event was lead by Dr. Traci “Tea” Alexander. Founder of Black Girls Rock Beverly Bond. President of NAACP Dr. Hazel N. Dukes. President & CEO of New York Urban League Arva Rice.
It was exciting listening to Dr. Hazel N. Dukes who is the President of the NAACP New York State Conference and a member of the NAACP National Board of Directors, a member of the NAACP Executive Committee and well as and active member of various NAACP board sub-committees. Dr. Dukes is a woman of great strength and courage. Her dedication to human rights and equality is exemplified by her role linking business, government and social causes. Dr. Dukes is an active and dynamic leader who is known for her unselfish and devoted track record for improving the quality of life in New York State.
Responding to the quote from Fannie Lou Hamer was the direction of the evening “Never to forget where we came from and always praise the bridges that carried us over.”
