Re-imagining Community – What We Can Do To Help Every Child Succeed: A Free Lecture with Geoffrey Canada

One of “America’s Best Leaders” (US News and World Report) and subject of the recent book Whatever it Takes by New York Times Magazine editor Paul Tough, Geoffrey Canada is the visionary creator of the Harlem Children’s Zone, a pioneering non-profit organization that works to enhance the quality of life for children and families in some of New York City’s most devastated neighborhoods. His unflinching dedication to educating and mentoring impoverished children has brought him national media attention and recognition by President Obama for creating a comprehensive program that can be emulated nationwide.
