Hello All! I have sent a message already to registered attendees of the Dear Black People™ Webinar Series. As you may know, the state I live in, Texas, is experiencing an emergency due to weather, and therefore, planned power outages have been happening randomly. We haven’t received very many updates, but each time the power goes out, unfortunately the Wi-Fi goes out, and last night the power went out around the time I plan to hold the webinar, followed by many power outages throughout the night. They have predicted this to go on for the next couple of days, but have unfortunately closed their offices, so we cannot call, we are only relying on seldom Twitter updates. I want to provide a very pleasant experience for attendees, so I don’t want to risk the power going out as we are in the middle of the class. Therefore, I have chosen to reschedule the classes for next week. I would reschedule for the end of this week, but I want to be safe, and I know at least temperatures will be going back up by next week. The issue is, many people are using their heat like never before which is causing a power surge. At least if I know the temperatures will be up, the power usage will be back to normal, so I won’t have to reschedule again just in case the power issue is not fixed.
I will now hold the last two classes of this go round next Monday and Tuesday; 2/22 and 2/23. Check out the classes, here!
