In honor of Black History Month, Antwonisha Ameen, Ph.D. and Weldon McWilliams, Ph.D., Temple UNiversity will help to shed light on the notion of Black Love past and present. What are the issues that surround Black Love in 2009? Now that we have a new public image of Black Love in Barack and Michelle Obama, many of us are wondering; where is my Barack or where is my Michelle? Today we want to explore why we have or haven’t found love in the African American community and the role society, economics, and even music has played in our quest. Also we will discuss “alternative” Valentines that may not be of the romantic sort, but are just as deserving of love and tenderness. David Brown, President & CEO of BrownPartners will also be with us to talk about the National African American Donor Campaign taking place the entire month of February. Did you know that African Americans have the lowest organ donor rate?
