RTP180: Expressions of Colors

As a way to honor Black History Month, this month we are highlighting five African American powerhouses from this region to talk about their different fields, how they got there, and how they express their culture and heritage today.

Join us on February 20 to hear topics varying from imagination and manifesting, to making the right next move.
