April 21, 2022 – An Evening with Nikole Hannah-Jones

“Education and housing are the two most intimate areas of American life, and they’re the areas where we’ve made the least progress.” — Nikole Hannah-Jones

Nikole Hannah-Jones is a journalist, 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 offer a compelling case 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.

The sixth installment of the Community Conversation Series hosted by CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health, Ms. Hannah-Jones follows previous visits by author Mitch Albom, Ambassador and Human Rights Advocate Samantha Power, HUD Secretary Julián Castro, former RNC Chair and Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele, and humanitarian and Chef José Andrés. Each speaker has shared their insights into the nature of a healthy community and steps that we, as local residents, can take to support and nurture an environment where every person has the opportunity to thrive.

Time: 5:30 PM VIP Reception at The Pressroom Restaurant (VIP ticket required), 7:30 PM Conversation
