Discovering History and the Future in the Same Building

I am so proud to be the speaker for the Arna Bontemps Board retreat this week. And I’m really amazed at their commitment. At this time when they have every excuse to sit back and say, “We can’t really do anything right now,” they’re not.

Instead, they’re moving forward by making their events virtual and planning for new ways to fulfill their mission.

That’s when you know your group is dedicated their mission.

If you don’t know about Arna Bontemps, the amazing writer and poet from the Harlem Renaissance (born in Alexandria, Louisiana), you can learn about him and find the organization’s upcoming events online at:

And thanks to the group for letting me be a little part of this amazing piece of history.
