Mark Williams asks the question: How do we seize our moments of Genius?
On Friday, August 4 at Warehouse 242, hundreds of creative Charlotteans (AKA our “Daybreak Legends”) successfully avoided getting barred by The Bard. That is, they got their tickets to hear Charlottean Mark Williams’ story about his inspiring Shakespeare in a Chair project. Originally launched in a local barber shop, Mark now uses the plays of William Shakespeare to change young minds throughout The Queen City – in ways that are amazingly relevant to the challenges our community is currently facing. As Thomas Edison once said, “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety nine percent perspiration.” Mark’s timely tale underscores the deep truth of that line.
