What I’m really speaking about is walking in purpose and what that means for us. The “Us,” I am referring to in this context is today’s young black professional. We live in a challenging time socially. We’ve matriculated through a world in which we think we’ve achieved access. We find ourselves faced with the fact that we’ve gained the right to be present (education, credentials, etc.), but we’re still not accepted in the workplace.
The feeling you have is unmatched. It’s the 5th Annual Derby Affair. The theme of this monumental anniversary celebration is being present in the moment. It means taking the time to reconnect with an old friend. It means joining new ones for a dance or a drink. It also means putting your phones down and living in the moment.
It's spring, and you know what that means?! Warmer weather, longer days, and spring fashion! Preview the latest in Derby fashion as you prepare for another Talented Tenth experience.
