April 25, 2015 Great Debaters event The Catalyst Network Foundation is proud to host a Great Debaters event on Saturday, April 25th from 4 - 7 pm at Howard University's Blackburn Center, Digital Auditorium. This event is a unique combination of policy discussion, networking, and mentoring that will build crucial social capital in minority communities. Prior to the event, a recruiting fair will be held for alumni from partnering universities, which include an eclectic mix of Ivy League and Historically Black Colleges and Universities. High school students, college students and young professionals will attend the debate, offering participants a chance to collaborate horizontally and vertically. The building and strengthening of these networks will help minority communities build opportunities and create pathways to success. We are seeking 4 alumni to represent Howard University in a debate: Pro: Mainstream Rap Music Anti: Rise of Charter Schools Other participating Alumni Associations include Yale University (D.C. Yale Black Alumni Association), Harvard University (D.C. Harvard Black Alumni Society), Hampton University (DC. Alumni Chapter), Columbia University (D.C. Alum), Morehouse College (D.C.
