The YWCA of Central Virginia in collaboration with the Academy Center of the Arts and Blackwater Branding will proudly celebrate Black History Month on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018. There will be a panel discussion about women’s impact in art, culture, and society. As part of the presentation, there will be an interactive portion where the audience will be able to ask questions and take part in a group exercise.
This collaboration is the second of three Academy events to celebrate Black History Month. We are excited to partner with the Alpha Phi Alpha, the YWCA, and Alpha Kappa Alpha to help ensure that Academy programming is created with the community in mind. Lynchburg is a diverse city, and the Academy looks forward to sharing the history and experiences of African-Americans beyond February with more events and community conversations.
This event is free to the public. Doors open at 5:30pm. The event begins at 6:00pm. Donations will be accepted to support the YWCA and the Academy’s outreach Offerings
About the YWCA:
The YWCA is the oldest and largest multicultural women’s organization in the world. Across the globe, we have more than 25 million members in 122 countries, including 2 million members in 300 local associations in the United States. More important than the numbers, is our mission to eliminate racism and empower women. We provide safe places for women and girls, build strong women leaders, and advocate for women’s rights and civil rights in Congress.
Women come to us in times of crisis, as survivors of rape or domestic violence. They come for job training and career counseling. They come for childcare. They come for health and fitness. They come for a variety of reasons. But they come. And they leave with a renewed spirit, new skills, and stronger lives.
