This week, we’re 1) celebrating Thanksgiving, 2) thinking about the leadership capabilities of Newark high school students, 3) checking out local artisans at Seed Gallery, 4) inviting you to nominate yourselves and your friends for a street style shoot by Citi Medina, and 5) asking you one more time you to vote for Brick City Live to earn more funds so we can do more work! The voting portion of the pitch competition ends Friday, November 29.

Happy Thanksgiving all!
Celebrate this week by giving back time, money, and/or resources to community members who need them.
Brick City Live was present at the mayoral forum on education this past Thursday at the Newark Public Library. Read our report about how the students who ran the debate kept the crowd and the candidates in line. Money quote.
The questions and the candidates’ responses were in line with those of the previous mayoral education forum, held at Science Park High School last month. But the students, commanding and irreverent in the face of the candidates and the crowd, proved adept at quashing the types of crowd outbursts that characterized the previous forum, and at keeping the candidates themselves in line.
Vinyl Swap featuring the Brick City Design Market
The event, which features live music and handcrafted designs for sale, is every Saturday from noon to 6pm at Seed Gallery, 210 Market Street, between Broad and Mulberry Streets.
Including a chance to be photographed by our featured Style contributor, Citi Medina! Check out this weekend’s post for details.
