An Evening with Nikole Hannah-Jones
Nikole Hannah-Jones is a journalist, author, Pulitzer Prize winner, and creator of “The 1619 Project,” an initiative from the The New York Times Magazine about the history and lasting legacy of American slavery. Ms. Hannah-Jones has spent years chronicling the way official policy has created – and maintains – racial segregation in housing and schools. Her deeply personal reports on the Black experience in America lay bare the need for greater equity.
Join CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health on April 21, 2022, as we welcome Ms. Hanna-Jones to join our Conversations About Healthy Communities series to explore the nature and nurture of healthy communities. Learning from Ms. Hannah-Jones’ experiences, we will discuss her vision of a healthy community, the challenges she has witnessed as communities have worked toward healthier, empowering cultures, the examples of success she has witnessed and her thoughts on how communities locally, across the United States and throughout the world can strive to create environments where every child, resident and family can thrive.
Healthy Communities: An Evening with Nikole Hannah-Jones will be held at St. James Episcopal Church, 119 N Duke St, Lancaster, from 7:30-8:30 PM. The conversation will be followed by a book signing. Tickets are also available for an optional VIP reception starting at 5:30 PM at The Pressroom Restaurant.
Thank you to our Presenting Sponsors The Steinman Foundation and the Lancaster County Local Journalism Fund for their support in bringing this event to the Lancaster community!
