Rockwood native Jennifer Hill said she knew immediately what she would talk about when Roane County NAACP President Joe Eskridge asked her to speak at the organization’s Jan. 17 Freedom Fund Banquet.
“Activism through social media,” she said.
Hill was one of two people to give an address at the event, which was held at Roane State Community College. The other was Gloria Jean Sweet-Love, a native of Fayette County and president of the Tennessee NAACP Conference. The theme of her speech was living for a cause greater than yourself.
