[Ours] is not a community determined by geographical characteristics, nor a community defined by commonality of task or ideology…It is a community which at once supports development and has as its non-instrumental, non-pragmatic (tool-and-result) activity, the development it supports.
Fred Newman, Lois Holzman (Unscientific Psychology, 1996)
Dr. Lenora Fulani has been building community for almost forty years, bringing development far and wide to people of color, to the electoral arena, to the poor and the privileged. Changing the world alongside others, not knowing where it will lead or “end up,” is challenging on many levels: politically, conceptually, emotionally. Come dialogue with Dr. Fulani and some of her most recent partners, the Fulani Fellows, a group of emerging scholars and activists who are engaged in a four-month program with her. Come learn from and explore the intimacy of co-creating community.
