Our speaker for Tuesday night’s pot-luck wears many hats, the latest being an adviser to last month’s speaker, Mayor Frank Scott.
Dr. Anika T. Whitfield, a Little Rock Podiatric doctor and Baptist minister, is a tireless advocate and organizer for human rights, and justice, She has served in many capacities as a volunteer in the LR public schools and is a leader in Save our Schools and Grassroots Arkansas.
Dr. Whitfield is an active supporter in the local Poor Peoples Campaign, a revival of the campaign started by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. just before his assassination. One of the goals of the campaign (shared by WAND) is to End U.S. militarism and make war a relic of the past.
Her enthusiasm is contagious. Join us!
