Eugene and Sylvia Whitlock
How to Talk about Race

Sylvia Witlock and her son Eugene will be speaking on the topic of "how to talk about race".

Brief Bio on Sylvia:
In 1982, while an Elementary School Principal in Duarte, CA., Dr. Whitlock was invited to join the history-making "Ex-Rotary Club of Duarte". She became President of that club in 1987, the year the United States Supreme Court ruled that the club be reinstated, thus making her the first woman in the Rotary International organization to head a club as President.

Dr. Whitlock's ‘Rotary resume’ is extensive, both in scope and the long list of awards she has received. The same goes for her activities and achievements outside of Rotary, including being named an NAACP Woman of the Year and receiving the Global Citizen Award from the United Nations Association (Oct. 2013)
