Join us for an evening of true stories. The theme is “What I Bring.”
So often, students coming from poverty and the adults working the schools that they attend are spoken of in terms of what they lack. But these students, and the adults who in and around their schools, have so much to bring. This is an event co-hosted by Spillit Memphis and Chalkbeat Tennessee. Center Stage stories are curated. If you are interested in telling a story, please contact us at

A special thanks to New Memphis for sponsoring this event, making it free for all educators.

Chalkbeat is a nonprofit news organization committed to covering one of Tennessee’s most important stories: the effort to improve schools for all children, especially those who have historically lacked access to a quality education. Find us at
