Black History Month Speaker: Nadine Wilkinson Johnson

GCNAACP is honored to host Nadine, one of the first Black students to integrate schools in Roanoke, VA in 1960.

On Sept. 7, 1960, Nadine and her sister made history as two of seven Black students that integrated schools in Roanoke, Virginia.

GCNAACP is honored to host an exclusive presentation by Nadine. Along with sharing her personal journey of integration, her son Nathaniel will discuss the legacy of his grandfather, Rev. R.R.
