As part of Niagara College’s celebration of Black History Month, students and employees are invited to register for a free Black History Month talk via Zoom with NC alumna and social justice worker Erica Williams on Tuesday, Feb. 21 from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
About Erica Williams
Social service worker-turned-entrepreneur, Williams founded Erica’s Embrace during her final year at NC, an organization which supports Caribbean, Black and African communities across the province through advocacy and the donation of Black hair care and beauty products to women’s shelters.
Williams has spoken at her alma mater several times over the years since graduating. This event – a collaboration between ncLibraries, CPOD, and Development and Alumni Relations – will highlight Williams’ transformational work and community advocacy, and will be a chance to discuss the importance of that work in relation to Black history, presents and futures.
