ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) -The Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC is hosting two educational events.

The goal is to celebrate diverse backgrounds and explore Roanoke’s history of racial segregation.

Several panel members shared their experience with Black history, and how that contributes to the city’s past and future.

“The hunger for this knowledge and the desire to make a change, it’s loud and clear. So we want to be a part of that, be a part of that for our community in Roanoke, and we want to be there, and a part of it for our community, those of us who are new here and those of us who we heard today, have been here a lifetime,” said Pamela Stell, the senior HR manager for Fralin Biomedical Research Institute.

155 people joined the virtual call Monday.

A Self-Guided Historic Gainsboro Tour 5K is also being offered through October 15.
