Janis 'Imi'ike is reading A Renaissance of Our Own by Rachel Cargle

For activist, philanthropist and CEO Rachel E. Cargle, reimagining – the act of creating in our minds that which does not exist but that we believe can and should – has been a lifelong process.

Aaron Samuels is reading On the Road by Jack Kerouac
