    New York Times best-selling author and Emmy-award winning star of “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” Iyanla Vanzant comes to Charlotte for the 4th annual Gantt Symposium, hosted by the Harvey B. Gantt Center and presented to the community by Wells Fargo. Vanzant, along with civic leader and former mayor Harvey Gantt, will lead a stimulating public conversation that addresses the pain and necessary healing within the Charlotte community as we approach the one-year anniversary of the Charlotte uprising.

    Known for her candor and no-nonsense style, Vanzant will share her insights on how the community can transform broken pieces into lasting peace, which can help unite the City of Charlotte. Join us for an evening that is sure to inspire and uplift, as we evaluate the work that must be done individually and as a community.
