Community invited to event highlighting Stories of Atlantic City

Stories of Atlantic City is a collaborative project joining community and media members to shine light on the true narratives within these 48 blocks.
But the project doesn’t end with the publication May 14 of the various stories.
On May 21, the community is invited to the subjects of these stories and to talk about what this all means.
Each day before the event, BreakingAC will highlight a different story in the series, including several by Stockton University students.
The panel discussion and community networking event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at The Leadership Studio on South Tennessee Avenue.
There will be music, conversation and learning.
