Past Event - African American Leaders Forum and Rhythmic Showcase

Thu, Feb 21, 2013 - 5:00 pm

Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate Black History Month with the YWCA!

Over 75 people joined us to hear from a dynamic panel of African American women leaders in our community:

  • Tina L. Nixon, YWCA CEO - "Violence in our Community"
  • Pat Gadsden, Life Esteem - "Black History in Harrisburg"
  • Yvonne Hollins, Boys & Girls Club - "Education & Opportunities"
  • Dr. Linnie Carter, HACC - "Higher Education"

The Rhythmic Showcase that followed featured many talented poetry and spoken word artists, which was powerful to hear. 

Look for more cultural events to come throughout the year!
