By: Real Life Real Faith Media
HOUSTON - July 11, 2018 - PRLog -- Thousands of activists, artists/entertainers, civil rights and social justice leaders will gather for the NAACP's 109th Annual Convention in San Antonio, Texas, July 14 to 18. Led by NAACP President Derrick Johnson, the five-day convention will include continuing legal education seminars, federal legislative and public policy workshops, youth workshops, civic engagement workshops, a Hip Hop summit, Diversity Career Fair, plenary sessions, the signature NAACP Experience, and more.

During the NAACP Experience at the Author Pavilion, panelists will be discussing Leadership Development during it's "Leadership: Raising the Next Generation Of Trailblazers" on Saturday, July 14th at 1:30 pm. The Moderator for this discussion is Award Winning Best Selling Author Cheryl Lacey- Donovan.

"Because of the climate we are living in right now, it is imperative that we do all we can to motivate, encourage, and train the next level of civic leaders. We have become complacent.  Basic rights and government assistance have some of us in a place where we don't feel the need to be mobilized any longer. We don't really push for change. We seem to rely on the older voices such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, but this new generation needs new voices; voices that can give an articulate and educated perspective of the plight of blacks in America. Where these voices will come from remains to be seen. But, we must find them, cultivate them, and put them into action sooner rather than later. We must all ask ourselves what are we going to do about it and make the sacrifices necessary to create more than a moment." says Lacey-Donovan

Cheryl has said that she believes authentic leadership is the first step to creating a society that celebrates our differences while embracing our commonalities.

"Platforms like that created by the NAACP are the first step in getting there," says Lacey-Donovan

Cheryl Lacey Donovan is showing what she's going to do about it by moderating the Author Pavilion Panel discussion on leadership Saturday, July 14, 2018, at 1:30 pm during the NAACP National Convention being held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center 900 E Market St. San Antonio, Texas.
