The evening will convene a panel of notables from various NAACP Branches across the country; Leslie Redmond, Esq., President, Minneapolis Branch; Reverend James Major Woodall, President, Georgia State Conference, and our own Danielle Sydnor, President, Cleveland Branch. The panel will be moderated by WEWS News Anchor, Danita Harris.
