Economic Stress—Empowerment for a Harsh Truth
Thursday, November 21, 6pm-8pm
Reception to follow lecture and book signing
Jefferson School African American Heritage Center Auditorium
In his book Economic Stress—Empowerment for a Harsh Truth, Robert Brown, medical sociologist and adjunct professor at Howard University, captures the personal stories of people ranging from seasoned professionals to single moms who, for one reason or another, are unable to meet their financial obligations. Through these anecdotes he poses the question of whether or not it is it time to redefine what success and the American Dream mean in the 21st century.
In his discussion he will share these stories along with strategies to manage economic stress. For a local perspective, Dr. Brown will be joined by Eboni Bugg, Outreach Coordinator for the Women's Initiative.
This event is made possible through the generous support of Wisdom Oak Winery.
