The Harvey B. Gantt Center and Compass Group North America have partnered to present The Question Bridge Blueprint Roundtable with Question Bridge artist Bayeté Ross Smith Jan. 17, 7 p.m. at Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts.

“Question Bridge: Black Males” is a transmedia exhibition currently on display at the Gantt Center. It explores challenging issues within the black male community through the perspectives and viewpoints expressed by a cross section of American society with diverse geographic, economic, generational, educational and social backgrounds.

During the panel discussion, titled “Why didn’t you leave us a blueprint?” Question Bridge artist Bayeté Ross Smith hopes to spark a powerful conversation that will build bridges and dismantle communication boundaries between generations regarding education, work, family and community.

The event will be moderated by Joseph Butler, co-host of WGIV’s Start Something, and feature a panel of black men including:

·       No Limit Larry - WPEG’s "The Morning Madhouse" host

·       Reginald Bean - author and Director of Multicultural Marketing at Coca-Cola Bottling Co.

·       Javen Cannon - Myers Park High School Senior and Possibility Project Youth Leader

·       Juan Logan - artist and retired professor, UNC Chapel Hill

·       Gary McFadden - former CMPD detective

·       Adrian Sundiata - Dean of students at Crossroads Charter High School
