Celebrating Black History Month: Inspiring Presentations at PVN

In honor of Black History Month, Presbyterian Village North (PVN) recently hosted two special guests to tell their stories. Dr. Frank Morris, a retired professor, discussed the importance of Black History Month. Dr. Morris shared his work helping historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) obtain support for their students and his efforts to ensure black scholars receive recognition for their work. Residents were inspired by Dr. Morris’ passion for education and equality.

PVN residents and teammates also enjoyed watching a performance by Hester J. Moore, a local actress and author. She told a powerful story about her experience as a teenage black girl and her involvement during the Memphis Sanitation Strike in 1968. Through her storytelling, she demonstrated how young people can make a big difference in the world. It was a reminder of the bravery and determination of those who fought for equal rights.

These presentations provided deeper insights into the significance of Black history and underscored the importance of commemorating it. PVN’s Community Life team is proud to provide a variety of events, such as these, to the residents throughout the year.
