P&P Live! Christina McDowell — THE CAVE DWELLERS - with Elias Alcantara

Upcoming Event
Thursday, May 27, 2021 - 6:00pm

They are the families considered worthy of a listing in the exclusive Green Book—a discriminative diary created by the niece of Edith Roosevelt’s social secretary. Their aristocratic bloodlines are woven into the very fabric of Washington—generation after generation. Their old money and manner lurk through the cobblestone streets of Georgetown, Kalorama, and Capitol Hill. They only socialize within their inner circle, turning a blind eye to those who come and go on the political merry-go-round. These parents and their children live in gilded existences of power and privilege.

But what they have failed to understand is that the world is changing. And when the family of one of their own is held hostage and brutally murdered, everything about their legacy is called into question. And they’re called the Cave Dwellers.

McDowell will be in conversation with Elias Alcantara, who served in the Obama White House as Senior Associate Director in the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs. He is active in local and national efforts aimed at promoting and expanding social justice, equity, and economic mobility in underserved communities. He serves as a member of the Lehman College Foundation Board, Trustee for the Sing Sing Prison Museum Board, a member of the Sankofa.org Board of Advisors and member of the Hostos Community College Community Advisory Council.
