Civil Rights Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
Join the African American Museum of Bucks County in 2019 for a four-part Speaker Series. Each extraordinary presentation will reveal American and local history, up-close and personal. The museum is tapping local talent with unique personal and professional perspectives of history to enlarge and enrich your understanding of history.
Part Two of the series features John Jordan whose professional and life experience is deep and expansive. He grew up in the South, then moved to live most of his life in the Philadelphia/Bucks County area. He has been a Vice President in Finance and Community Banking. He has been a consultant, a board member, an advocate, a public speaker, and in his spare time, a singer. In 2008, John was appointed by the Governor of Pennsylvania to serve as a Commissioner on the Governor's Advisory commission on Diversity Affairs. In 2014, he was appointed to the National Voting Rights Commission by the Obama Administration for his work in Pennsylvania protecting voting rights. Let's hear this dedicated leader's perspectives and insights about civil rights: yesterday, today and tomorrow.
