Event Description

We are happy to report that Critical Conversations will return for Season Three. Our theme, Timeless Voices: The Speeches/Letters of Notable African Americans, will meet on Zoom, the 2nd & 4th Wednesday of each month from 7:00-8:30 PM, beginning September 28. (We are planning to build in a couple of in-person meetings as well. More to come on that later).

Plan to participate in the discussion, analysis, and salient conversation regarding the words and wisdom of Nikole Hannah-Jones, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, and Angela Davis, among others. We will be peeling back the layers; you may think you know these contributors to our history--and you may-- but there is always more to know. Join us to begin or continue learning.

Moderators: Dr. Ruth E. White, Eric McKinley Thompson, and Betty Daniels

Registration is required. Register on The Academy SPS Facebook page or at

We look forward to a robust series and hope you are, too! We hope that you will encourage friends and colleagues to join as well. 

A safe place to learn and discuss Black history, Black culture & social justice.
