Doris Ross Reddick Video Unveil

We are excited to announce the unveiling of the 2nd in our Legacy Video Series, honoring selected Hillsborough County leaders from the minority community. This next video will honor the life and contributions of Doris Ross-Reddick, the first African American female to serve on the Hillsborough County School Board.

This unveiling will take place on Tuesday, October 25th at 3:30pm at the Robert W. Saunders Library located at 1505 N. Nebraska Ave., Tampa, Florida 33602. The community is invited and encouraged to attend.

The video was produced in-part by students of Computer Mentors Group whom participate in the STEM Corps High School Program. The students were mentored and led by professional photographer and videographer Kerrick Williams of Kerrick Williams Photography. Kerrick and students were also assisted by author and storyteller Ersula Odom-McLemore through her company Sula Too LLC.

This video, along with the series, was made possible by a grant from Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners. The videos are also being made available to the Hillsborough County Public Libraries and to Hillsborough County Public Schools to assist with the African & African American Studies program.

Computer Mentors Group currently has 80 youth enrolled in Information Technology and video training as part of its STEM Corps High School Program. The program is a continuation of the Youth Computer Training program that CMG has successfully sustained for the last 19 years.

We hope to see you in attendance next week. Light refreshments will be served and since there is limited parking at the library, there will be additional at the Booker T. Washington Elementary School located next door at 1407 E. Estelle Street.
