Take a look at this article from UNC-Chapel Hill's College of Arts and Sciences profiling Dr. Benjamin E. Frey.

Ben joined the Friday Fellowship as a faculty member in 2017.  His story includes experiences in many places from Alabama to Wisconsin to Germany and of course North Carolina.

From the article:

"Understanding the mechanics of how a language shift happens gives you a window into how it might go the other way,” Frey said. “So, if we’ve broken down social networks in order to shift a traditional language to English, presumably a way to shift back is to build them up.

The bold portion is a key insight into Ben's work with the Friday Fellowship.  Restoring social networks -- and the civility, community, and sustainability they bring -- is work he is already doing.

Read the whole article for even more perspective.

Frey was also recently awarded a Career Enhancement Fellowship by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.  His presence and skill are a unique and special gift to the current class of Friday Fellows.
