Another of the amazing people I have met is Morgan Malone. I wrote about the petition her organization started to reinstate a Black Cultural Center on Old Dominion University Campus. Well, she is a human being that I have a lot of faith in , and I believe with all my heart we will be hearing about her in the years to come. Possibly in the political arena?
She is attempting to get to a conference put on by Netroots Foundation. In fact, this is a conference I myself would like to attend, but I am not sure I can get there. Morgan is trying to get a scholarship to attend the conference, and it is a “voting” type of thing where the person with the most votes gets the scholarships. Not sure I agree with their method, but at least they offer a scholarship for attendance, so I can live with it.
This is from their website:
