In this week's HOT-Seat is a Chosen Visionary you cannot afford to miss. It might be the closest you might ever get to a historian of this caliber, who has been directly involved in the fight for Civil Rights his entire life. You can sit with him capturing nuggets of wisdom and learning truths you can't get anywhere else. You can ask good questions getting age-old answers (from someone who was there).
For over 38 years, Rev. Rivers worked at every level of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), including President, North Charleston, South Carolina Branch; Executive Director, South Carolina State Conference; Director, Southeast Region; Chief Operating Officer, twice as Chief of Field Operations, and Vice President of Stakeholder Relations from 2008 until May 2014.
In July 2014, Rev. Rivers became Vice President of Religious Affairs and External Relations of the National Action Network (NAN) under the Rev. Al Sharpton's courageous leadership. Rev. Rivers is honored to work with Rev. Sharpton in an organization known for taking action in today's' civil rights battles.

Nelson B Rivers III is in the house and sitting at the table with us in a most intimate way. Only at the Urban Academics Roundtable Thursday at 9:30 pm (EST).
