In honor of Legacy Week, the third week in July honoring Maggie L. Walker's legacy and the one year anniversary of the St. Luke Legacy Center in the historic St. Luke Building in the Jackson Ward neighborhood of Richmond, VA. The SLLC used Legacy Week to promote our initiatives to promote wellness to our community - mentally, emotionally, socially, physically, and financially.
Throughout the week that also honors Maggie L. Walker's birthday, who was the entrepreneur who was the first woman to charter a bank in the United States right here in Richmond, we partnered with some amazing local entrepreneurs who embody Walker's legacy.

We took our kids on a tour of Evergreen Cemetery with Enrichmond Foundation and celebrated Maggie L. Walker's birthday by cleaning up her gravesite and the surrounding areas. In the evening, we joined Ceonna Samuels from Certified Scholars for a virtual bedtime story.
This panel connected the dots from our communities, to our families, and our mental health... and how to overcome that generational trauma. Our panelists were the Board of SLLC: Korinn Y. Carter, Nikki Shaw, George Johnson, and Tarin Carter. Moderated by: Mecca Williams.
