YWCA is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. Part of that mission is lifting up and sharing powerful and inspirational voices and stories. We are proud to tell James Harkness’ story to the El Paso community! James grew up in El Paso and attended Bel Air High School. Life has taken him on quite a journey and he is now one of the stars in Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations!
James’ life experiences have influenced almost every aspect of his life and have made his success possible. The Temptations are an all-black singing group and also one of the most prolific and influential groups of any genre or time. His experiences as a black and gay man help him tell their story as well as his own.
We are proud and excited to invite the El Paso community to our next virtual conversation:
James Harkness: Leading With Love
A YWCA Courageous Conversation with El Paso’s own Broadway star! A discussion on art, activism, and being a citizen of the world.
