Roslyn Brock, the Chairman, National Board of Directors of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), will present the keynote address for the two-day conference celebrating the anniversaries of the Emancipation Proclamation and March on Washington. She will discuss (100)50 Years: At the Crossroads of Jobs, Freedom and Equality. Presented by the Hofstra Cultural Center and the NAACP Hofstra Chapter. 

Roslyn Brock is the youngest person and fourth woman ever elected as chairman of the NAACP.
