Inspired by the Kwanzaa principle of Umoja (unity), this online panel discussion features local representatives from each of the original nine Black sororities and fraternities, collectively known as the “Divine Nine.” This panel will explore how the African American community has been disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, political disunity, economic disparity and access to equity in the workplace.

Participants will include Dr. Sean Flynn (Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.), Dr. Kordai DeCoteau (Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.), Dr. Derrick I. Wallace (Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.), Dr. Karma Warren (Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.), Dr. Michael Murry (Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.), Vesta Godwin Clark (Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.), and Dr. Carlos Rodriguez (Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc.).
