Second Life of Chattanooga’s Managing Senior Partner Jerry Redman will give the keynote speech at the Hamilton County NAACP’s Jubilee Day on Jan. 1, at 11 a.m. at Hamlet Chapel CME Church on 2510 Cowart St. The event will commemorate the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln’s issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation.
“It is an honor to participate in Jubilee Day,” said Mr. Redman. “This is a time of celebration, but there is still much work to be done.”
“Foundational to civil and human rights is a belief in human dignity,” said Mr. Redman. “Every person deserves the rights and freedoms worthy of that dignity. None of us can experience full humanity unless all of us experience it.”
