Let's Talk About It!
Capital City Area Black History Program TODAY and TOMORROW morning!
A small group of Mercer County folks got together in my living and founded the Capital City Area Black Caucus whose sole purpose is to discuss and celebrate issues and people who champion issues dealing with African Americans. The GREAT thing about it is not all participants, speakers, or honorees are Black. We've met every month for almost four years joined by our Congresswoman, Lt. Gov., State Legislators, State Chairman, and influencers throughout the Country. Well...TODAY @5:35 pm andTOMORROW morning at 9 am, all of our hard work is paying off We will be joined by most of New Jersey's TOP leaders from the Murphy Administration, State legislators, powerful social justice institutes, civil rights groups, and a special celebration of our former Attorney General Andrew Bruck. I will be on at 3:45 pm today to tell you more about this. Please join me to hear how YOU can participate through our FB live-stream program where the price is right...FREE!

Candid conversation about where we are with the pandemic!
Let’s have a candid conversation about where we are today with this pandemic. What about the confusion over whether to shed our masks? Well, LaRuelist Café will sponsor a conversation about all of that on Sunday, May 16th @ 1 pm…live on FB and YouTube. You may have seen our guest on MSNBC and CNN! She’s a senior executive in a Newark NJ hospital overseeing Population Health, Strategic Planning, Community Affairs and the Human Experience. Yes…we’re talking about the dynamic, charismatic DR. CHRIS T. PERNELL. Last year NJBIZ named her a Public Health Hero.

Why is Georgia's new election law voter suppression?
