How did a black Quaker man and a white guy get together to form an acoustic duo that sings love songs to Philadelphia and leads workshops on racial and social justice? Find out at a talk by City Love!

 City Love ( is a West Philly conscious acoustic duo with harmonies, hip hop, cajon, guitar, and mandolin.  From the heart.  For the people.  Sterling and Caselli are educators and musicians who write songs to spread the love, make people move, make people laugh, and foster dialogue about the issues of our times.  Their music is a meeting point between the city and the suburbs; between black and white; heavy and light.  City Love seeks to bring people together and works to help heal the racial divide in our country.  They synthesize the power of music and deep conversation to reach audiences in ways that dialogue alone often cannot.

Sterling and Caselli will visit campus numerous times throughout the semester visiting classrooms and working with student leaders to explore the ways that creativity can build community across differences in identity, social cause, or orientation. They will accompany the Haverford delegation to the 2019 White Privilege Conference in Cedar Rapids, IA, where the team will lead a workshop: A Little More Universal: Creating Accessible Classrooms for Marginalized Identities by Expanding on the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Framework

This event is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Libraries and Quaker Affairs.
