  • Seats 4 Kids

    Location:

    Wharton Center, MSU, East Lansing, MI, 48824.

    Description:

    MSU's Wharton Center has established Seats 4 Kids, a scholarship fund to provide free tickets to local youths who could not otherwise afford to attend a performing arts event. Much more than just entertaining, the arts have the power to teach, inspire, unify, and truly transform individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Research shows that young people who are engaged in the arts do better in school and are more involved in their communities. They also demonstrate higher academic performance including increased standardized test scores and lower drop-out rates than those students not involved in the arts. Tickets are distributed to economically-disadvantaged children through local community service organizations and Title 1 schools that have been pre-approved based on their ability to distribute scholarship tickets to qualified kids.

    Over the last few years, Ta-Nehisi Coates has established himself as one of America’s finest intellectuals, a writer whose essays are so powerful and rigorously researched that he has forced many discussions on issues that would otherwise be ignored. His 2014 extended Atlantic essay, “The Case for Reparations,” stands as one of the most brilliant exposés of recent history. He is also the author of two memoirs, The Beautiful Struggle and Between the World and Me, which are both brilliantly conceived. Coates continues the discussion on racism prompted by MSU’s Project 60/50 and One Book One Community. A special chance to see this in-demand author in a rare speaking engagement.
