Since the Forum moved its meetings to the Belmont Center in 2016, Tommie Robinson was the ageless gentlemen planted firmly in the left front corner of the room. His attendance was so regular, his questions so reliably probing, that facilitators opening each question-and-answer session would regularly simply announce that Tommie Robinson would have the first question.
Rarely did he not have one.
Artist, keen observer, commenter on the environment, role model, muralist, entrepreneur and much more, Robinson is scheduled to be at 700 N. Tryon St. for a Saturday afternoon celebration.
Son Winston Robinson announced the event Monday, saying it would be Saturday, April 2 from 2-5 p.m. at the VAPA Center, the former Hal Marshall building. “There will be light Hors d’Oeuvres and drinks, as we celebrate the life, service and creativity of renown artist Tommie Robinson.”
