The Links of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chapter is hosting Four Townhall Sessions focusing on Black History including Black Lives Matter, Blacks in the Arts, International Issues, Health and Human Services and HOW these issues are connected to our communities locally and internationally. Our hope is to have a dialogue on issues not covered in our school curriculum or not covered in depth.
Some emphasis will be placed each week on College Entrance Test Date deadlines, the College Application process and deadlines as well on Historically Black Colleges.
Scholarship opportunities may also be available for some Seniors.
The sessions will be held on the following Saturdays from 10 to 12 a.m., at the Lauderhill 6-12 School, located at 1901 NW 49th Avenue, Lauderhill, Florida 33313: January 26th, February 2nd, February 16th, March 2nd. The Culminating event is scheduled for April 6th.
