BETHLEHEM, Pa. — A symposium for young women of color is aiming to help them overcome systemic barriers to college education, as well as self-doubt.

The Zora Martin-Felton Symposium, held on Friday, is named after the first person of color to graduate from Moravian University. Felton, who was born in Allentown in 1930, graduated from Moravian in 1952 and lived until 2022 when she died in Maryland.

The one-day symposium is a long day of classes, speeches, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities, designed for an audience of high school-age women of color.
