Using Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s quote, “My enemy is someone whose story I haven’t heard” as a touchstone, Dr. Susan Glisson and Charles Tucker, the co-founders of Sustainable Equity, will share stories of dialogue, understanding and trust within divided America. From a historic conviction in a cold civil rights case, passage and implementation of a statewide law requiring civil rights and human rights history curriculum in all Mississippi schools, to work with the City of New Orleans on Confederate monuments, and work with corporations such as Facebook, Glisson and Tucker have a diverse and substantial list of success stories of leading individuals and communities to examine their own attitudes and biases combined with the building of trust and respectful relationships.
