Tune in to WOL 1450 AM, 95.9 FM and WOL Live Stream on February 16 at 10:30 am EST, for Everything Co-op, hosted by Vernon Oakes. Everything Co-op continues its commemoration of Black History Month with an interview of Pastor Keith Davis, President and CEO of the Camden Dream Center’s Technology Training School in Camden, New Jersey and Julian D. Miller, Esq., founding Executive Director of the Reuben V. Anderson Center for Justice, at Tougaloo College in Mississippi. Vernon and his guests will discuss black food sovereignty.
The 2023 theme for Black History month is Black Resistance. The theme explores how “African Americans have resisted historic and ongoing oppression, in all forms, especially the racial terrorism of lynching, racial profiling, and police killings.” As societal and political forces escalate to limit access to and exercise of the ballot, eliminate the teaching of Black history, and work to push our country back into the 1890s, we can only rely on our capacity to resist.
Reverend Keith Davis is a pastor and community leader, technologist, and thought leader in technology and workforce development. He is President and CEO of the Camden Dream Center’s Technology Training School, and co-chair of the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Educations (NICE) working group to promote career discovery and multiple pathways to high-paying cybersecurity jobs.
Julian D. Miller, Esq., is the founding Executive Director of the Reuben V. Anderson Center for Justice and the co-founding Director of the Reuben V. Anderson Institute for Social Justice at Tougaloo College in Mississippi, where he also serves as an assistant professor of political science. He is a lawyer and community activist who is committed to economic, social, and racial justice through grassroots-led efforts to shift policy in a direction that uplifts all poor and working people.
