Hear from local experts during the two-day conference, which begins on Saturday at 8 a.m. and runs until 1 p.m.
On Sunday, Miss Mississippi Jasmine Murray will keynote the annual Awards Program, when the NCNW recognizes students of high academic achievement and great citizenship. The Awards Programs kicks off at 3 p.m. at the State Capitol with a reception to follow.
“As a service organization, the national council of negro women believes that developing our youth is the key to our future,” said Mattie Stevens, President of the National Council of Negro Women. “Our youth summit provides another opportunity to not only contribute to their health, education, and economic empowerment, but to also recognize them for the great work they're doing inside the classroom.”
