Lafayette 148 Partners with the NAACP for Instagram Live Conversation

by Eddie Roche

Lafayette 148 are partnering with the NAACP for an Instagram Live conversation tomorrow from 2-3pm with  activist and author, April Ryan, and civil rights activist and vice chairman of the board at the NAACP,  Karen Boykin-Towns.

Topics to be discussed include the historical context for this movement and why it’s so much bigger than George Floyd; the power of the protest; the work of the NAACP in fighting for justice and equality for more than a century; what it’s like covering this crisis as a black woman journalist; and how we can all help, in ways both large and small.  Ryan and Boykin-Towns will also take questions from viewers.

The Lafayette 148 team has pledged to donate an undisclosed amount to the NAACP, which Lafayette 148 co-founder and CEO Deirdre Quinn has committed to matching.
