In February, REACH Riverside and Wilmington It’s Time presented the first in a series of two virtual panels called “Celebrating Black Excellence in Wilmington, Delaware.”
The first panel was hosted by Logan Herring, CEO of The WRK Group — REACH Riverside, The Warehouse and Kingswood Community Center. The conversation featured Jahmere Hargraves, Markevis Gideon, Ray Rhodes and Aaron Bass discussing their experiences in Wilmington from a Black male perspective. Watch that event here.
