A new organization has been formed in Chesapeake to offer its residents various points of view, awareness, learned discourse, diversity and even entertainment.
The nonprofit Chesapeake Forum is now up and running and will present three nationally and internationally known speakers for its inaugural series.
On Jan. 29, the series kicks off with Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist Jane Pauley, host of “CBS Sunday Morning.”
Subsequent dates will present entrepreneur and astronaut Mae Jemison, the first African American woman in space, on March 3, followed by Irish tenor, recording artist, and inspirational speaker Ronan Tynan, also a record holding Paralympic athlete, on May 14.
