Executive Director
North Carolina Black Repertory Company

“It is hard to believe that I participated in Class IV in 1997. I remember my experience vividly as we formed relationships during the course of the program, traveled across the state, and engaged in impactful conversations. The program is informative, educational, and challenging. At the same time, the most important aspects of the program to me were meeting new people, appreciating different points of view, and the relationships formed that have continued for twenty years now. The experience has resulted in a friendship with one of the speakers during our class year and recommending others with an interest in experiencing the program. The time spent in the program was time well spent and the return on that investment continues.”
