On August 8th, TEDxBeaconStreet converged at Villa Rosa, a late 19th-century seaside home on Martha’s Vineyard that has attracted owners and guests looking to change the world for the better.
Martin Luther King Jr., Adam Clayton Powell Jr. and other civil rights leaders visited what has come to be known as the Summer White House for African Americans, owned then by Joe Overton, NY’s first African American labor organizer and president of NAACP New York Chapter. Currently owned by Valerie Mosley, who named it after her grandmother, Villa Rosa is a gathering place for positive energy people.
We were pleased to have Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s senior advisor and other Speakers who will share their stories and suggest strategies to improve our society.
Keep an eye out for the talks which will be dropping in the coming weeks!
