About this artist

Little Family

Wednesday, July 29, 1PM EST

The incredible students, educators and administrators in the N4 family know that reading great literature has proven to be directly tied to an increase in civic engagement. To that end, we are amassing a vast network of artists who have the tools to transform education by using their considerable talents and connections to strengthen and diversify every facet of Narrative 4.

One such artist is N4 founding member and co-chair of our artists network, Ishmael Beah. Ishmael’s new novel, Little Familywill be the focal point of this event as we dive into what it means to turn empathy into action in the Joe Slovo Township of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Several students and educators from the region who are determined to change the narrative of this community by turning trash into treasure will join him during this highly interactive event. There will be videos, chats, art, hope, song and perhaps a very special musical guest, so stay tuned!
