The Hungry Club Forum of Savannah, Inc. (HCFS) will present its monthly Signature Roundtable and Open Forum, on Saturday February 1, 2020, at 9:30 AM, in the Multipurpose Room of the WBS YMCA. “A Potpourri of Soul: Celebrating, Preserving and Making Black History” will mark Savannah’s premiere community issues forum’s annual celebration of Black History Month. Although we should celebrate Black History every day, according to Diana Harvey Johnson, a consultant to the HCFS, this annual forum highlights the many contributions made by persons of African descent, to America and the world.

The breakfast forum will take this opportunity to celebrate history, but also to explore new ideas and innovations being developed to take our community on to the next level.

“We want to continue to collaborate and exchange ideas and information with a broad cross section of the community to help establish a consensus on the directions needed for increased participation and positive growth. Also, we want to hear what young leaders and professionals view as opportunities to realize the dreams and aspirations of those who have already made outstanding contributions.”

Percussionists Abu Majeid and his son Yusef Major have been invited to call up the forces of the African Diaspora with their unique brand of drums and percussions. As they busily move around Savannah and the Low Country this season, the HCFS is proud to once again welcome them to our platform.

The keynote presenter for this session will be Donald L. Dowridge. What sets him apart from a crowded pack of motivational speakers is the power of his presentations. Through Empowerment Seminars and Black History programs, the Tampa-based actor and author presents his message in a humorous, entertaining, compassionate and dramatic fashion. In November 2019, his 14th book entitled, “Motivational Moments” was released. He will share with attendees the “P-O-W-E-R of Being A WINNER.”
