Thanks to support from the Humanities Council, Center for Inspired Teaching hosted a town hall in honor of the 20th anniversary of the publication of the book, Dream City: Race, Power, and the Decline of Washington, DC… I was very gratified to see over 100 students, teachers, and members of the community in attendance,” said Center for Inspired Teaching Manager of Teaching & Learning Cosby Hunt. “There was a common understanding in the room that we, the participants, share the same city, and that city deserves good stewardship; in addition, this event reminded me of the power of a community dialogue.
