WHAT: Hosted by New Beginnings Pastor Karl Angelia Adair, the afternoon will celebrate the end of Black History Month with singing, liturgical dance, spoken word, storytelling, and presentations by local community members, historians, and civic leaders.
The event will also honor local "change agents," Howie Godfrey, Evanston Township High School (ETHS), student and young musical prodigy; and Robin Rue Simmons 5th Ward Alderman and leader of Evanston's Reparations Initiative. Dino Robinson, founder of Shorefront Legacy Center, will be the guest historian.
"If ever there was a time in our nation we needed more UNITY, that time is now," says Pastor Adair. "This event will reflect, raise awareness, and acknowledge the accomplishments and influential experiences of Black men, women and youth. Black history is not merely the history of African Americans, it is our history as the American people."
