Conversations on Great Streets: Walking into African American History
African American History
Don Murray starts the Panel by addressing question, to Mossi K. Tull, Deidre Gantt, Kevin Anderson and Njeri Jarvis, who are regular Washingtonians passionate about their culture, community and why they feel that the African American community should build their empowerment and respect for one another. Understanding African American history and seeing all those how have successfully achieved high positions, for example Barak Obama, should be the motivation the African American to continue to reach higher and better places. Being able to address conflicts and negative representations within the African American community should be used to be a motivation to improve neighborhoods and then help other communities exchange ideas to develop a connection instead of comparing one place to another. This is a discussion that is based around the understanding African American history in order to have the context of today's situation to be proud of ones own identity. This panel direct their thoughts in a room full of young audiences who represent the future.
