Black History Month Celebration: Hidden Figures and Community Involvement

February 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Young Man Speaking into a Microphone

Join us for an evening celebrating the achievements of organizations and individuals in our region and the ways they have improved their local communities and beyond.

Chris Suggs of Kinston Teens Inc. and Youth Impact Strategies will discuss his work in Kinston and the positive impact young people can have on their own communities. Throughout history and even today the work of people in minorities goes unnoticed or unacknowledged and it is important to shine a light on those good works. Representation matters. There will be musical performances by Encore! Craven Community College‚Äôs singing ambassador students, food, ticket giveaways to the New Bern Civic Theater play Miss Evers’ Boys, and community organizations on hand to find out different ways you can get involved!

Participants include:

  • Craven Community College Foundation

  • New Bern Civic Theater
