MIAMI-DADE – Miami-Dade County’s diverse black population shares a common heritage but seldom unites in pursuit of shared interests. To address the need for joint action, Miami-Dade County Commission Chairman Jean Monestime – along with County Commissioners Barbara Jordan, Audrey Edmonson and Dennis Moss, and Miami City Commission Chairman Keon Hardemon – are co-hosting a free daylong forum to bring together black Miamians of all backgrounds to discuss issues affecting the African diaspora and to develop a collective action-oriented agenda.

The “ONE HERITAGE: State of Black Miami” community forum will take place on Thursday, April 7 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Florida Memorial University Smith Conference Center, 15800 NW 42nd Ave., Miami Gardens, FL 33054. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.
