VCIC Richmond Chapter member and 1993 Connections Institute alumnus Marc Cheatham recently released a new film project exploring the experiences and perspectives of nine prominent Richmonders.  Titled “Finding Tomorrow: Experiences in Black Leadership,” the videos aim to “spark discussion, provide inspiration, and capture this important time in our culture.”
Included in the project are several leaders with connections to the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities.  They include Richmond Chapter member and 2001 Humanitarian Award recipient Sister Cora Marie Billings, 1999 Humanitarian Award recipient and current Richmond Mayor Dwight C. Jones, and Dr. Tawnya Pettiford-Wates, founder of The Conciliation Project, with whom VCIC partnered on “Pushed: explorations into bullying.”  Along with the other interviewees, they explored “the challenges facing the black community in 2014 and the leadership required to move forward.”
The Finding Tomorrow project is a collaboration between The Cheats Movement and theVirginia Museum of Fine Arts.
