From the Worcester NAACP:

Greetings and Happy Holidays!

Please join us at our next meeting tomorrow, Mon., Nov. 27! James Bonds will discuss the series of events leading to the replication of the original “Colored Citizens of Worcester Honor Roll for World War II.”

Dr. Thomas Doughton will share the history behind the original “Honor Roll” dedication, as well as future plans to honor all of Worcester’s African American WW II Veterans.

Our meeting agenda will also include:

Black Minds Matter (collaboration with Holy Cross College) – A series of discussions designed to raise awareness of issues facing Black boys and men in education. The Worcester NAACP is looking for members who are interested in working with Dr. Thomas Doughton and Holy Cross college.

Worcester’s Black Jewish Alliance – Update on future event ideas. We are looking for members to join the alliance in our efforts to build relationships between the Black and Jewish Communities through educational experiences and cultural events.

Ideas for quarterly public discussions concerning social justice issues, politics or other topics of importance. We are looking for members to help create quarterly public forums to discuss issues that matter to our communities.
