We invite our listeners to share some of their favorite memories about Dr. Lomax and how his legacy continues to live on through WURD Radio. There will be a day-long series of Broadcasts, Live Streamed panels from inspiring speakers, giveaways and much more.
In addition, we are launching Lively-HOOD – an initiative to connect Philadelphians to Career Readiness Information, Entrepreneurship Opportunities, Small Business Resources and Financial Literacy.
We can’t wait to see you on-line!
