Leadership Charlotte Class XXIX evaluated the city's planning and growth through a Crossroads Charlotte lens. The day focused on Planning and Growth and Crossroads was used to help the participants consider the future growth and development of Charlotte. The scenarios were read by Crossroads participants: Toni Bucci, Kevin Campbell, Hyong Yi and Arlette Dolphin. Toni and Kevin are graduates of LC and Hyong and Arlette are in the current class. The poets were powerful, compelling, thought provoking and were truly helpful in sparking discussion. Table discussions were passionate and candid and the majority of the class concluded that the Beat Goes On was the most plausible scenario. Others thought that Charlotte needs a "transformative event" to propel its citizens toward working on a plan to move the community in a more positive direction. Ultimately, the class agreed that it will take committed leadership along with the commitment of citizens to build a community that has improved social and interracial trust. As an organization, Leadership Charlotte is in the process of evaluating how they can use Crossroads Charlotte as a vehicle for having more meaningful impact via their community projects.
