To celebrate Black History Month we will host a candid discussion with prominent Austinites about the State of Black Austin in 2015. We will discuss a myriad of topics surrounding criminal justice reform, economic empowerment, African American family structures, mentorship, navigating the local political arena and our image in the media.
