NBC12 VIEWPOINT: History Makers, Symposiums and a Mayoral Debate

NBC12 VIEWPOINT: History Makers, Symposiums and a Mayoral Debate

By: Kym Grinnage email

What a week! On Monday, Oct. 11, the James River Valley Chapter of the Links Incorporated, hosted a community forum and book signing with historical two historical figures: former Governor L. Douglas Wilder and the former U.S. Secretary of Health & Human Services, Dr. Louis W. Sullivan.

Both of these giants were on the campus of Virginia Union University to discuss their most recent books: "Son of Virginia" and "Breaking Ground: My Life in Medicine."

It was truly an informational and inspirational event.

If you are in the mood for some brain food, I have a great plan for how you can spend your day on Monday, Oct. 17.

There will be a symposium at 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. entitled: Race & American Society: 60 Years after the Kerner Commission Report. This event is presented by the Wilder School of Government & Public Affairs and will be held at the Singleton Center for the Performing Arts and the Grace Street Theater.

At 7 p.m., the ChamberRVA Mayoral Debate will be held at the Altria Theater. It's free and open to the public. It can also been seen live and on delayed broadcast on NBC12, WCVE and the Ideas Stations.
