Danny Glover Discovers The Sweet Water Universe at the Sweet Water Foundation Chicago State University Aquaponics CenterMay 12 2014 · 0 comments · Education
There is brilliance & artistic ingenuity coming out of #Chicago South Side. Truly OFF THE CHAIN! –Danny Glover @mrdannyglover
Grace Lee Boggs and Richard Feldman have long partnered with Danny Glover, the Sweet Water Foundation, and the expanding web of “new workers” advancing the next American ®Evolution from their Detroit Boggs Center myriad projects. The Sweet Water experiment was introduced to Grace and community the same week of Obama’s 2008 election, before ground was broken for the Sweet Water Organics(SWO) experiment, and before the Sweet Water Foundation(SWF) was formalized.
Emmanuel Pratt, director of the Sweet Water Foundation, and James Godsil, President of the Board, have since visited the Boggs community once or twice a year, and maintained a steady flow of reports and partnerships, including participation in Re-imagine Work Conferences, and a magical Sweet Water day in Chicago with Access Living.
Glover’s visit was inspired by Feldman’s telling Glover that he “has to see this new work place…There’s nothing like it!”
