Lessons Learned is a live storytelling event series founded by Winnie Kao. The event series features a curated speaker lineup, intimate setting, and stories from smart people about hard-earned lessons. Founded by Willie Jackson, Abernathy Magazine is an online publication where black men and some of their closest supporters discuss race and culture in a thoughtful way.
In keeping with the Lessons Learned format, Abernathy Magazine’s launch event featured 10 speakers each giving live talks about their own personal stories on lessons related to identity and race.
After the talks, the attendees networked and posed questions to each speaker. It was an unforgettable evening of raw, intense and even humorous stories from a diverse range of voices.
