Event Description

NPR's How I Built This with Guy Raz is going live! On Thursday, November 30 in Washington, D.C., join NPR's How I Built This creator and host Guy Raz in conversation with Robert L. Johnson. They'll talk about the ingenuity and grit that led Robert to co-found BET and the RLJ Companies. Like NPR's How I Built This podcast, the evening will inspire you to think big as you embark on your own ventures: business, non-profit, creative, and beyond. An interactive event before Guy’s live conversation will let you share stories about what you’re building with fellow participants, and put your own ventures on the map of D.C.—literally. At the end of the evening, we'll reveal a full digital map of the city, showcasing your ideas and innovations.

Doors open and interactive event begins: 6:30 pm
Conversation begins: 8:00 pm
Conversation ends: 9:30 pm (approximately)
