About this Event

Heart and Soul Center of Light Invites You to an Evening in Conversation with Susan L. Taylor and Michael Eric Dyson.

Ms. Taylor and Mr. Dyson are inspiring thought-leaders and speakers. Their trailblazing social impact work, scholarship, and activism is unparalleled. We are delighted to welcome them to Oakland, as we celebrate our 10th anniversary.

Ms. Taylor and Mr. Dyson will also present an award to Heart and Soul Center of Light’s teen essay competition winner. Our teens have been asked to share their highest vision for the next ten years.

Join us for an evening of reflection, insight, humor, and celebration!
