Community Event: The Kaleidoscope Series with author, Matthew Desmond

May 7 @ 5:30 pm

Participants will be challenged to examine the topic of poverty as it relates to Richland County and similar communities struggling with income inequality issues.

MacArthur “Genius” Matthew Desmond and Princeton sociologist was launched onto the national stage as an expert on contemporary American poverty with the publication of his Pulitzer Prize winning bestseller Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. Combining years of embedded fieldwork with painstakingly gathered data, Evicted transformed our understanding of inequity and economic exploitation in America.

The Kaleidoscope Series is a speaker series based on the understanding that the problems facing our community are complex with no easy solutions. But, we also know lasting progress cannot occur without the ability to look at these problems with fresh eyes from different angles… like a kaleidoscope. The 2024 Kaleidoscope Series is an open invitation to anyone and everyone to do just that, together. You will have the opportunity to consider new ideas, be challenged through different perspectives, and engage with every corner of our community.
