THE MISSION OF THE CENTER
The Center for the Study of Transformative Lives exists to inspire young persons and public audiences through the study of individuals who have made a difference in the world—persons of conscience, creativity, courage, and compassion who have advanced human rights, equality, and personal and societal flourishing. Through teaching, research, and public programming the Center serves as a place to study and honor exemplars from past and present in their context in search of sorely needed wisdom for today and tomorrow.

INVISIBLE LIVES: HOW FUGITIVE SLAVES TRANSFORMED AMERICA
The Center is excited to welcome back two-time Pulitzer Prize winning biographer, David Levering Lewis to explore the surprising portrait of Wendell Willkie, the businessman–turned–presidential candidate who (almost) saved America’s dysfunctional political system. The event will be an insightful exploration into Wendell Willkie, and will be followed by an engaging discussion and Q&A.
