Jadusingh agrees: "We can always learn something new and hopefully see things from a different perspective. This series offers a space to explore the realities that others experience day to day. Supporting educational initiatives such as this shines a light on causes of conditions that can contribute to slum and blight in communities. Hopefully, people will gain compassion for one another from the information shared through these informative talks."

Black Widow

Returning to Palm Beach County for the first time in two years, Leslie Gray Streeter was the longtime pop culture columnist for The Palm Beach Post before publishing her widely praised memoir Black Widow. With her signature warmth, hilarity, and tendency to overshare, Streeter looks at widowhood through the prism of race, mixed marriage, and aging. She redefines the stages of grief, from coffin shopping to day-drinking, to being a grown-ass woman crying for your mommy, to breaking up and making up with God, to facing the fact that life goes on even after the death of the person you were supposed to live it with. Tender, true, and endearingly hilarious, Black Widow is a story about the power of love, and how the only guidebook for recovery is the one you write yourself.
