On Wednesday, July 28th at 12:30 Eastern, during the 32nd Annual National BDPA Conference BlogTalkRadio Host, Jacqueline Lawson and co-host Milt Haynes, National BDPA, will bring you Blog Talk Radio Live!

African Americans sometimes underestimate the impact of technology on shaping the course of history. The show’s segments will include short interviews of senior BDPA officials to discuss their vision and dream for the organization. Internet Radio brings an added technology feature to the conference. It is a format that allows for real-time dialogue over the phone and in chat rooms anyone can access on the Internet. These Internet Radio interviews will provide multiple perspectives that are sure to appeal to anyone interested in the future of African Americans in IT.

Poignant, technical, moving. The interviews with the Board and Executive Committee members of BDPA will set the tone for the history, goals and mission of BDPA. An interview of the Founder will set the stage for the direction of the show by giving a perspective of the organization then and now.
