“Love is a Great Expression of Power”
 Erika Huggins gives the keynote address
at STLCC Florissant Valley, March 1st,
to kick-off Women’s History Month.
Huggins has lectured across the country for
the past 30 years. “As an activist, former political prisoner 
and leader in the Black Panther Party, educator, and student,
I’ve devoted my life to the equality
of all beyond the boundries of age,
culture, class, gender,
sexual orientation or ability.”  
During a question and answer session, Huggins gave 
advice for improving urban communities.
“We can stop crime and improve the community 
    by being a mirror for someone else.”
