More than 70 people from across the D.C. metropolitan area converged on the Thurgood Marshall Center in Northwest for a monthly lecture series, led by Dr. Ben Chavis of the National Newpaper Publishers Association.

The Jan. 7th program focused on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy. After opening words from Dr. Chavis, Sam P.K. Collins moderated a panel that included LeVar Jones of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington, Nataki Kambon of Let’s Buy Black 365, and Big Baba Rob of the Black Geeks. The nearly two hour conversation painted a holistic picture of King and left audience memebers wanting to “do something” as We Act Radio’s Kymone Freeman would say.
