Gloria Browne-Marshall, a prominent civil rights attorney and activist, will give a speech at Manor College to coincide with Black History Month.
This commemorative speech, titled “400 Years of Perseverance,” will recognize the 400th Anniversary of the 1619 arrival of Africans to the Virginia Colony, as well as highlight the following four centuries of African American resistance, perseverance, and contributions to America. This free event will take place from 12:30-1:45pm in Manor College’s Basileiad library presentation space and is open to the public.
