Black Voices and Personal Choices: A Celebration for Black History Month

Voyagers Toastmasters will celebrate Black History Month at their February 17, 2022 online meeting with a showcase of four experienced speakers presenting their unique perspective and knowledge of African American history.

You are invited. All are welcome, all ages. You don’t have to be a Toastmaster.

This event will be conducted via Zoom, and will entertain, inspire, inform, and move attendees with stories of personal and historic events of and by African Americans. Each speaker will demonstrate skills they have learned from Toastmaster participation, and each will present a different aspect of African American culture.

Attendees will also learn about the benefits of public speaking skills learned from Toastmaster attendance and participation.

Speakers include:

Dr. Angelique Hood, a graduate of Spelman College, a Historic Black College and University (HBCU), will present the talk “Education: The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste”, discussing the evolution of education to overcome racism.

He has four times earned the highest award conferred by Toastmasters International, Distinguished Toastmaster. Patrick will share his personal story and personal choices his family made, that he learned about in 2001…that his family heritage was predominately African and Cherokee. His parents had gone “underground” because they could cross the color barrier and maintained a family secret for over fifty years

Johanna Brown, speaking about Kizzmekia Corbett, Scientist and Mentor. Though her mentor’s coaching Ms. Corbett, a high school student, learned that becoming a scientist was an attainable goal. Since then, she has lived the mentoring philosophy “each one, teach one”.
