The Joshua Generation: A New Generation Heeding the Call to Leadership
Join us this Monday, August 31, 2009 from 8-9:00AM as we speak with Charles McGee, President and CEO of the Black Parents Initiative, and Johnell Bell, former staff aide to Mayor Potter and Multnomah Chair Tom Wheeler, about the " The Joshua Generation: A New Generation Heeding the Call to Leadership".
Recently, Messrs. McGee and Bell coauthored an opinion piece in the Oregonian which challenges us to nurture and encourage a new generation of black political leaders. We will reflect on President's Obama's clarion call to the generation following the civil rights era and the challenges and opportunities that young African Americans face on the national and local scenes. The program format will include interview and calls from the listening audience.
