I AM EMPOWERED Speaker – Rudy Jean-Bart

 

Rudy Jean-Bart

BROWARD COLLEGE

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF HISTORY

Session: Sankofa- Light the Past for a Brighter Future

You can tell a great deal about a country and a people by what they deem important enough to remember, to create moments for — what they put in their museum and what they celebrate. However, we can learn even more about a country by what it chooses to forget — its mistakes, its disappointments, and its embarrassments. In some ways, Black History month is a clarion call to remember. In this session we heed that call and encourage us all to remember. Learn more and be EMPOWERED.
