One of the highlights of the June DPVA meetings is always the Democratic Black Caucus of Virginia’s Juneteenth luncheon, and this year was no exception. Highlights included EJ Scott’s presentation on the Freedom Riders (including their Virginia connections), a talk about the need for preservation of African-American historical cites by Montgomery County School Board member Penny Franklin, a brief address by Chairman Moran, and an Obama update from Brandyn Keating (which would have benefited the whole Central Committee). Former DPVA vice chair Del. Onslee Ware presided and he and former DPVA Executive Director Levar Stoney received awards. See Program for additional information. The next Black Caucus event is the October 8, 2011 Fall Jubilee in Richmond. Don’t miss next year’s Juneteenth event.
