Every other Thursday at 3pm live on our Facebook page, Tea Time with the Jackson Center takes both a look back at Jackson’s place in history and a look forward, showing how his legacy influences current events. You do not have to have a Facebook account to join us – simply click here to see our Facebook page, watch previous #TeawithRHJC events, and join us live on Thursdays at 3pm.
Our 2021 programming theme is The Work Left to Do, and within that theme we’ll explore a different focus each month. In the first Tea of the month, we will look at a topic from a broader perspective to understand the universal and legal challenges. For the second Tea of the month, we will speak with someone who is doing the work to educate and/or change minds and viewpoints around that topic. For the month of January our programming will focus on race.
This week’s Tea guest is Juan R. Thomas, the Vice Chair of the American Bar Association Civil Rights & Social Justice Section. Juan is Of Counsel at Quintairos, Prieto, Wood & Boyer, P.A., the founder and principal of The Thomas Law Group, a member of the Council of the American Bar Association’s Section for State & Local Government, and the General Counsel for the Morehouse College National Alumni Association. Juan and Kristan will discuss the equity gap through a race-based lens.
