Celebrating Black History Month: “Black Innovation: Past, Present & Future

February 22 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


The Riverside Education Ministry is proud to sponsor in partnership with Joppa Lodge #55 an afternoon celebrating black innovation with guest speaker Keith Holmes. Mr. Holmes is a noted lecturer and author of “Black Inventors, Crafting over 200 years of Success.” His discussion will highlight the long history as well as recent innovations by Africans on the continent as well as the diaspora. It promises to be a fun-filled afternoon of black history trivia, music, spoken word, song and a play performed by the Brothers of Joppa. Please bring gently used and cleaned winter hats, gloves and socks as well as clean t-shirts and thermal underwear to donate. All are welcome!
