Rochester mayor Lovely Warren will speak at 10 a.m. Other speakers include Jessica Lewis, principal/CEO LaLew Public Relations; DuWaine Bascoe, president, Rochester Black Bar Association; and D. McLarin Johnson, executive director, Mentoring to Manhood. The summit also will include networking sessions and a post-event party sponsored by the Spanish and Latino Student Association.
