Donovan Livingston captivated millions when his 2016 Harvard School of Education address, the poetic “Lift Off,” went viral. On Dec. 1, Charlotte Will and Wake Forest University have invited Livingston to the Booth Playhouse in uptown Charlotte to share his ideas on how education can inspire children to dream, lift their voices and realize their potential.
After Livingston’s address, he will join a panel moderated by Ann Doss Helms, education reporter for the Charlotte Observer, and featuring Jelissa Hernandez, a North Mecklenburg High School student, and Reggie Harris, a teacher and Career Academy Coordinator at Olympic High School.
Limited tickets, $10, are available at EveningWithDonovan.com.
Charlotte Will is a 12-month awareness campaign to support and bring attention to various community organizations dedicated to improving economic mobility, education and literacy.
