Akron, OH - Dominic Moore-Dunson & Francine Parr will present all about Akron on August 19.

These two influential figures of Akron have a lot of things and achievements going around them.

The project encourages discussion about black identity, how it relates to economic development in the black community and the solutions we can develop to cultivate a more diverse pool of black professionals and other marginalized people groups. All of it by partnering with arts, education, and business institutions or corporations
