LEWISBURG, W.Va. — Early registration is encouraged for a Summit on Race Matters in West Virginia, which will be held in Lewisburg on Feb. 23 and 24.

This third such summit to be staged in Lewisburg will bear the theme “The Time is Now” and, according to organizers, will afford a “splendid opportunity for people to improve their participation in the improvement of race relations.”

The venue is the Kyle and Ann Fort Arts and Sciences Building on the Lewisburg campus of New River Community and Technical College.

Presented by the college and the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy, the summit will feature two prominent keynote speakers — Dr. William M. White on Friday evening and Arley Ray Johnson on Saturday morning.

Johnson is a former member of Huntington City Council, who served in the West Virginia House of Delegates for six years and was executive director of Advocates for the Other America.
