Quick note from Dr. Boyce:

 

To those attending the NYC event with Dr. Cornel West, please make sure you get there early.  The school told us that the doors are closing after the first 450 people are in the building.  If you want us to do a similar event in your city and are connected to an organization we can work with, please email maria@boycewatkins.com.

Until we meet again, please stay strong, be blessed and be educated.

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Boyce
