Anatomy of a Dream 

Anatomy of a Dream is a conversation series hosted by Ariana that dives into all the interesting personal and political complexities of dream fulfillment. Inspired by the question famously asked by Langston Hughes in one of his poems: "What happens to a dream deferred?", Ariana talks to thought leaders from various backgrounds and industries in one-on-one interviews and panels to explore that question and more.
