We Re-Member's Black History Month

 Anniversary Event

 

Happy 2021! 

We Re-Member is excited to celebrate our second anniversary and host our Black History Month Event!  This event will take place on Sunday, February 28th between 1pm-2:30pm PT via Zoom.

We are hosting a panel discussion exploring how Black people have created brave and safe spaces in hostile environments.  We have a phenomenal panel who have dedicated their efforts in creating awe-inspiring work in their communities. 

Our panel:

Valda Harris Montgomery, PhD, is a retired associate professor of the Clinical Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program at Alabama State University. She is a native of Montgomery, AL and earned degrees from Fisk University, Alabama State University, United States Sports Academy, and Auburn University. She is the second child of Richard and Vera Harris. Dr. Richard Harris was a pharmacist and owner of Dean Drug Store, one of the oldest black pharmacies in Montgomery. He was also a Tuskegee Airman. From May 21-24, 1961, Dr. Harris and his wife courageously opened their home to the Freedom Riders and many civil rights leaders as a safe haven for rest and strategic planning. In 2006, she successfully sought historic recognition in the form of a marker for the Harris House and is in the process of opening the family home to tourists. Dr. Montgomery has documented her childhood memories of the Civil Rights Movement in a book, “Just A Neighbor”, which highlights the relationship of her family and that of Martin Luther King, Jr.
