When the Stars Begin to Fall

March 31, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event
When the Stars Begin to Fall by Theodore Johnson

Dr. Theodore R. Johnson sees both a Promise “big enough for all of us” and an existential threat if we cannot somehow find each other to live into it. And at a time when it’s easy to be overwhelmed and confused, he lights a path forward that we might travel together—with wisdom and clarity that draws us in.

Join us as Dr. Johnson makes an invitation—and a challenge—to all of us, born of lived experience as a black son of the American south and love of this country he took an oath to preserve.

Dr. Theodore R. Johnson is a public policy scholar and military veteran who served as a White House Fellow and speechwriter to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Ted is currently a Senior Fellow and Director of the Fellows Program at the Brennan Center for Justice at the NYU School of Law. He holds a Doctorate of Law and Policy, and his research focuses primarily on African American political behavior as well as civic solidarity.

This program is offered in partnership with The Village Square and facilitated by Florida Humanities Executive Director, Dr. Nashid Madyun.
