I got to attend a poverty simulation, and write about it, too http://www.michael-jackman.com/i-got-to-attend-a-poverty-simulation-and-write-about-it-too/ http://www.michael-jackman.com/i-got-to-attend-a-poverty-simulation-and-write-about-it-too/#respond Mon, 19 Jun 2017 13:59:41 +0000 http://www.michael-jackman.com/?p=526 The next best thing to attending an enlightening poverty simulation is writing about it. Here’s a recent piece I wrote about my experience, featured in the IU Southeast Diversity Blog. It’s great to write feature stories that combine personal experience and also connect with important social justice issues (and promote my university at the same time!). I love writing for this blog!

The first show will be a tribute to Bob Dylan, and the second, to Leonard Cohen, two great songwriter/poets we lost recently.
