Community Conversation: The Promised Land

In the closing of his Mountain speech, Dr. King talked about his vision of seeing the “promised land.” Did you know that Gwinnett’s history includes a “Promised Land”? This historical piece of land, now owned by the Livseys, a prominent African American Family in Gwinnett, is nurtured in the Snellville/Centerville area of Gwinnett County and has a unique story of its emergence in the 1800s until now. Attend the community conversation featuring Dorethia Livsey who will give an account and historical perspective of the Promise Land and what it means for current and future generations.
This community conversation will be moderated by Tyisha Fernandes, with Channel 2 action news and will feature a Q&A.

The event is free and open to the public. A light reception will follow.
