Event Description

Join us for an evening of purpose with Dr. Michael Allen, a recent Principal of the Year and Crain Chicago's Business Notable Black Leader and Executive. Dr. Allen will coach us as parents, caregivers, and a community to cultivate our own humanity so we can better cherish both ourselves and others. Come prepared to participate.

Dr. Allen is a skilled mentor and coach of thousands of school and district leaders and a contributor to the Inclusive Education Act bringing pre-enslavement Black History to all Illinois students. On his journey, he recognized the huge need for reading materials that depict young Black boys in a manner that is authentic, relatable, and life affirming. He co-authored the best-selling children's book Brotherly Love with his brother. His continuing story is one of tireless advocacy to end policies that hold down students of color. 

Presented in Partnership by Arlington Heights Memorial Library, District 214 Community Education, League of Women Voters of Arlington Heights, Mount Prospect & Buffalo Grove.

Adults and teens may register with up to one guest. Space is limited.
