where can someone find the schedule for this conference? Elaine didn't seem to know what meetings were going on or who was speaking...this blog doesn't have a schedule....the WSU website doesn't have this conference on their events calendar.
maybe the state NAACP can have a website where information like this can be available for everyone to access.
