Event Description

Lin-Manuel Miranda said it best…“My musical, In the Heights, explores issues of community, gentrification, identity, and home, and the question: Are happy endings only ones that involve getting out of your neighborhood to achieve your dreams? In her refreshing new book, Majora Carter writes about these issues with great insight and clarity, asking us to re-examine our notions of what community development is and how we invest in the futures of our hometowns. This is an exciting conversation worth joining.”

We are excited to have MacArthur 'Genius Grant' Fellow and Peabody Award-Winning Broadcaster Majora Carter, lead a workshop that facilitates this wonderful discussion on how we invest in our communities, which is indeed one of the highest expressions of creating joy.
