Diversity Conference

The NewVAConnects Diversity conference was really great tonight -- some awesome music history lessons about jazz, the blues and gospel. Then on to the panel discussion, which was fascinating in what leaders think needs to happen to better integrate Roanoke.

Afterwards, a great group gathered at 202 Market to listen to the music of a mixed genre band of musicians. A ton of folks showed up representing every quadrant, neighborhood and civic group.

The goal was for tonight to begin a productive dialogue.
