As one looks at our region, home to an incredibly diverse population with many well-educated African-Americans and a large number of African-Americans in visible and powerful leadership positions, it is easy to believe that racism is not a factor in our region. We hear about wealth disparity and income inequality, but rarely do we talk about racism as one of the issues worthy of conversation and action in the Greater Washington region. This CEO Coffee and Conversation will begin that conversation.

Chris L. Jenkins is an assistant local editor with the Washington Post. In this role, Chris is an observer and reporter on local politics and the local community. In addition to his editorial responsibilities, he is co-founder and editor of TheRootDC, a website focused on the African-American community in the region and he is executive producer of “BrotherSpeak,” an award-winning video series that explores the lives of African-American men.
