    Dear Reverend Doctor Pennybacker:

    Many thanks for attending the third installment of a four part series on “James Brown: The Macon Factor” on last evening at the Washington Memorial Library. It was truly a great conversation, and it is my belief that many people were inspired by the information presented. As discussed, I look forward to seeing/chatting with you about the Robert McDuffie performance (I also plan to attend the opening dinner/keynote as well), and about the Knight Cities Challenge grant for which I am a finalist for my project: “The Tindall Project: Voices From the Hood.” All the very best.
