Developing a new generation of civic leaders.

Through GenerationNation, students learn first-hand how their governments and communities work; understand and can discuss important civic issues and differing points of view; know how to find and use good sources of news and civic information; and, build social capital, knowledge, and experience to be civic leaders who transform their schools, neighborhoods, communities and nation for the better…now and for the future.

NEW: Latta Plantation site manager Ian Campbell issues a statement that reads, in part, "To the masses on social media and politicians, no apology will be given for bringing a unique program to educate the public about former slaves becoming FREE!" https://www.lattaplantation.org/

Thank you Mr. McDowell for the opportunity to speak on todays episode of “Your Path to Non-Profit Leadership!” We focused on my experience in the field of policy and non-profiteering as well as the importance of paid internships, and retaining talented future Black male leaders.

To illustrate, here is how the maps look for Minneapolis (most ordered) & Charlotte (most disordered), rendered with this amazing tool for showing maps of roads by @anvaka: https://anvaka.github.io/city-roads/?q=dublin&areaId=3601109531

One of my favorite scientific figures is this one of the entropy levels of 100 world cities by the orientation of streets. The cities with most ordered streets: Chicago, Miami, & Minneapolis. Most disordered: Charlotte, Sao Paulo, Rome & Singapore. Paper: https://appliednetsci.springeropen.com/articles/10.1007/s41109-019-0189-1

I think an underrated nice thing of Charlotte is how engaged Charlotte/Mecklenburg youth is w/ local/state/national issues and with @GenNation

At 16 I wasn’t nearly as cool as some of these very involved individuals
