Williamson County’s African American Heritage Society will host the first in a series of networking events called “Black Coffee” on Wednesday, October 24.
A group will gather from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. at Ty’s House in the Hard Bargain neighborhood for coffee, pastries, and discussion from entrepreneurs and professionals about their successes and challenges.
The event is geared toward young professionals. The first speaker will be Dionne Lucas, the director of marketing and communications from the National Museum of African American Music.
“I’m very excited about this networking series,” said longtime AAHS member Robert Blair, who is publicizing the event. “It will bring awareness and provide an opportunity for dialogue on a variety of topics often not discussed in our community.”
The African American Heritage Society is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to collect, preserve, and interpret artifacts pertaining to Williamson County’s African American culture and increase diversity and appreciation heritage.
