As part of an effort to continue the celebration of black history year-round, the Virginia Beach History Museums, Princess Anne County Training School/Union Kempsville High School Alumni and Friends Association (PACTS/UKHS) and Norfolk State University (NSU) are excited to announce an expanded year-long partnership, “The African-American History Panels.” This free, quarterly virtual panel series kicks off on Thursday, February 24, from 12:00-1:30 p.m.

The 2022 panels, which will be moderated by Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander, Dean of the NSU College of Liberal Arts, will cover a broad base of discussion points pertaining to the 2022 National Black History Month Theme, “Black Health & Wellness”. Discussions will range from an overview of the national topic to how the theme impacts communities, families, education, and other sectors. Each panel will feature various panelists to discuss different topics.

The first panel discussion of 2022, “Black Health & Wellness: The Urgency of Now,” will stream via Zoom on Thursday, February 24 from 12:00-1:30 p.m. The panel will be an open discussion format and will allow for public questions, or contributions, with assistance from the moderator. Visit NSU’s event website for more details and to register for the event.

Future discussion descriptions and registration information will be announced closer to each event date. If you have any questions about the panel discussion, please email Hillary Plate, Cultural Programming and Grants Coordinator for the Virginia Beach Cultural Affairs Department, at hplate@vbgov.com.
