What happens when you bring together a civil rights legend from Charlotte's past and put him on stage with a rising star of the civil rights campaigns of today? And then use that conversation as a springboard for dialogue among 100 strangers?

Join us for a community breakfast on Wednesday, Oct. 25 at House of Prayer’s cafeteria on Mint Street. We’ll start with an on-stage conversation between Harvey Gantt and James Ford, led by the Observer’s Editorial Page Editor Taylor Batten, focusing on the state of civil rights in Charlotte. Following insight between Gantt and Ford, we will spark a dialogue between audience members about how to make Charlotte a more connected, dynamic, and opportunity-rich city for all. Come prepared to listen, learn and share your thoughts about race, civil rights and community.

Buffet opens at 7:30, conversation runs 8-9:15 a.m. Registration is required - REGISTER HERE

Ticket proceeds will to to the charities of Harvey Gantt and James Ford's choice.
