The Power of Diversity

The Power of Diversity

05/29/2019, 2:10 PM - 2:55 PM


Arkeah S. Jacobs will moderate a discussion between panelists, Reginald Meadows, Daurisa Tessier and Dr. Sheila Williams on the power of diversity within the literacy community and how authors can use it as a tool to further promote their platforms. In addition, we will touch on the literacy rate amongst minorities, the importance of the written work, family legacies (stories) and why they are very seldom being passed down to the proceeding generations. It is vital that we as a literacy community encourage others to get back to creating and appreciating heritage outside of the social media world.
