Women from across the region had an opportunity to hear an incredibly encouraging story and meet Arlinda Locklear on Friday at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke's annual Women’s Empowerment Summit. The Summit includes guest speakers, networking opportunities, and storytelling with a goal to help those in attendance feel empowered. This year’s theme was "Preserving HERstory.” One of the keynote speakers was Arlinda Locklear. Locklear is an expert in federal Indian law. She was the first Lumbee woman to present her argument before the U.S. Supreme Court. Locklear has fought for over 20 years, alongside many others, for the Lumbee Tribe of NC to receive full federal recognition.
