The Office of Faculty Development invites you to join visiting artist Ledisi for lunch and conversation, moderated by Terri Lyne Carrington. Ledisi will be on campus September 23-26 as part of the 2015 Beantown Jazz Festival Residency.
New Orleans native Ledisi Anibade Young, who performs as Ledisi, has recorded six albums, gained eight Grammy nominations, including a nomination for Best New Artist in 2008, performed six times at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama, and earned a place in the pantheon of the best soul singers of her generation. Now this singer-songwriter has come into her own with an exuberance that shows on each track of her new album, The Truth. The album is filled not only with Ledisi's trademark soaring ballads but also with something unexpected: a generous collection of up-tempo, beat-driven celebrations of love and trust.
Effective communication is essential in creating an accessible information and social environment for all. One step in doing this is to understand it from the prosepctive of someone who depends on it day to day. Join our conversation with Josh Crary, Diversity Programs Advisor, as he shares his experience as a visually impaired member of our Berklee community. September is national guide service dog month.
