Videographer and music producer, Keke Beatz, walks and talks with program host Darryl Johnson about Preston Community Talks.
The Preston Township Library Office is rolling out the staff’s first big program—an interactive and contemporary community conversation series, called Preston Community Talks.
The program series launches on Monday, June 7.
Hosted by one of our community specialists, Darryl Johnson, the program is made for young Black men and everyone supporting them. The topics for discussion are decided by the communities served by the library office, which are North Preston, East Preston, and Lake Loon & Cherrybrook.
“I’ll be hosting many events giving many chances for young men to take part in healthy discussions about the events having an impact on us as a community, and as young Black men,” says Darryl.
To launch the series, Darryl called on a trusted voice, The “Mayor” of North Preston, Nevell Provo to be his first special guest. With his son and Black-business owner, Corvell Beals, the first Preston Community Talks will be about the community history of North Preston and the issues young men are facing today and in the future.
Preston Community Talks is open to all. Even though the focus is on topics of concern for young Black men, all supporting members of the Preston Township can take part in talking about what’s happening and where to go next.
