Sunday, May 5th | 2:00 PM
Academy of Music Theater, 274 Main Street, Northampton, MA
Join Senegalese documentary filmmaker Samba Gadjigo for a discussion with other African social innovators on the role of story in social change, followed by a screening of SEMBENE!
How do stories – the ones we are told and the ones we create – weave the fabric of our beliefs about WHO we are and WHAT we are capable of?
More than 50% of the people living in Africa are under the age of 25. The stories that are told and shared about Africa can make or break the potential of this rising demographic to build the communities of the future. Philanthropy is often about unearthing new human potential shared through stories of possibility. Now we have an opportunity to share stories with others who could benefit from this event, but may not be able to afford to go. The co-hosts are selling blocks of 20+ tickets for 10/pp to go to community-based, academic and other priority groups in Western Massachusetts. To learn more visit www.Laudable.Productions.
