Building Futures: A Symposium on Affordable Housing featuring Dr. Marc Lamont Hill

Tuesday, March 12, 2019
Habitat Charlotte and South State Bank welcome Dr. Marc Lamont Hill to the Queen City for the fourth annual Building Futures: a Symposium on Affordable Housing.

As Charlotte continues to grow with blinding speed, the state and availability of affordable housing remains a major topic of conversation. What often goes unexamined, though, is the impact safe and stable housing has on health, education, equality and so much more. Join us as Dr. Hill helps us navigate this important topic in our community.

Building Futures is free and open to the public. Because of limited space, we simply ask that you reserve your seat by registering in advance.

Dr. Hill shares a bold vision of the future, where social progress and the pursuit of equality depend on listening to each other while adopting a fearless attitude toward change.

As a scholar and award-winning author, he expertly dissects political and social moments as a way to initiate frank discussions on culture, politics and race. By identifying key issues, challenges, controversies and trends in the news, he spotlights the work that must be done to sustain the ongoing struggle for equality and freedom.

Dr. Hill’s message emphasizes the importance of working across generations to promote America’s youth and even rely on them to inspire future progress. He provides concrete solutions for bringing communities together, along with anecdotes and examples to inspire hope and courage.
