Read a write-up of this book talk by Anne Mosle. 

On December 6, 2016, Ascend fellow C. Nicole Mason participated in a conversation with Jonathan Capehart, member of the Washington Post Editorial Board and MSNBC contributor at the Aspen Institute to discuss her new book Born Bright: A Young Girl’s Journey From Nothing to Something in America. The discussion touched on a range of topics including the power of stories and narratives to build a more inclusive and equitable society. The audience was deeply engaged and asked important questions about how we might work together across communities and differences to ensure all children have a fair shot at opportunity and success.
