The Three Little Kids is a Hip Hop Cultural awareness play which is designed to self-empower our community by coursing the residents through a rite of passage. The production ensemble will journey through a rite of passage by learning, producing and performing a full scale production. The 3LK is produced to bridge the gap between adults and young people to heal the misunderstanding about Hip Hop culture. We see the future in which all organizations can work hand and hand to bring back the unity in our communities. We believe that this will continue to inspire the neighborhood to imagine and build its own destiny.

The Three Little Kids is based on the fairy, The Three Little Pigs, which has a Hip Hop twist to it. The Three Little Kids is a story of three kids who grow up in the community and would do anything for a record deal. The three little kids have real talent and never realized they had enough knowledge, wisdom and understanding to get them where they wanted to go. Wolf Daddy discovers the kids first and uses them to get his pockets phatt. He preyed upon Dumb because he knew that Dumb never like to read or write. He preyed upon Deaf because he knew that Deaf never like to hear what anyone kicked in his ear and Blind, Blind never saw her future, he just live for now. Wolf Daddy knew she was materialistic and had his peanut gallery Huff and Puff seduce her with jewelry and rides wherever she wanted to go.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Organizational Culture of Fear: The Shadow Side of US Culture

Don't let the title mislead you. Peter's intimate conversation with life, career and business coach CJ Liu is profound, touching and funny. Ostensibly a discussion of Peter's book Flawless Consulting, CJ says at the end, "We didn't talk about the book at all." Instead, the conversation ranged from personal transformation, integrating who you are with what you do and outlets for pain and rage to freedom, authenticity, courage and the power of co-creation--plus yoga, cartoons, parenting and much more.

The Problem With Problems

One of the reasons we may have so little productive citizen creativity at the local level is that people buy into the belief that the purpose of getting together is to deal with a problem. There is another purpose that is probably more important: engagement that mobilizes citizen creativity and contributions.

Who Has the Skills to Build Community? We All Do

Transcription of John and Peter's September 12th conversation with YES! Magazine co-founder Sarah van Gelder on her 12,000-mile cross-country journey learning from people who were re-making America from the ground up and how it led to starting up a new project: PeoplesHub, an online space where communities can learn and share the skills of making powerful change.

#CraftingSomethingGreat in Duluth

In an op-ed for the Duluth News Tribune, Pam Kramer enumerates the plans, investments, collaborations and creative sparks that have turned an area of blight and brownfield into the Lincoln Park Craft District. The humming, entrepreneurial neighborhood has become a model for how to leverage local craft manufacturing to fuel community revitalization, says Duluth LISC’s executive director.

In San Diego, LISC is an Engine that Accelerates Opportunity

An in-depth article in the San Diego Union Tribune touted LISC’s new fund to spur affordable housing creation in a city facing a serious shortage. We beg to differ with the “little-known” descriptor in the article’s title, but the account of LISC’s 25 years of work in underinvested San Diego neighborhoods illustrates our role perfectly.

A Safe, Affordable Haven for LGBTQ Seniors

Town Hall Apartments in Chicago is an extraordinary—and rare—example of affordable housing geared for LGBTQ seniors, many of whom enter their later years with few resources after a lifetime of discrimination. It’s community development at its best, helping people access opportunities and stabilize their lives. In recognition of LGBTQ History Month, we throw a spotlight on Town Hall and hope it will serve as a path-breaking model for communities everywhere.
