I'm so glad I attended this event! I was looking forward to hearing Congressman John Lewis and he did not disappoint at all. He was amazing, funny, and intelligent just hearing and learning his life experiences gave me chills. I loved it!

This was an empowering event, that I enjoyed very much. As a member of Generation X it provided a powerful message about where we came from and where we are going. It allowed us to contemplate on the negative actions of the past, and see why my generation was glad we were diversified. We have moved a long way in society in the direction of inclusion and we have continue to move in that direction. Great event, which I consider to be a "Once in a Lifetime Event."
