Does Your Event Need a Speaker?

Whether I'm on the PBS documentary or you heard me from Johannesburg, WGAL, or Cafe con Leche Morning Radio, I speak from the heart.  I share my personal experiences and wisdom on racial justice and authentic community; interracial relationships, diversity and inclusion for educators, and making art that makes a difference.  I offer perspectives based on decades of research and university level, but I always bring in my spoken word, juju #blackgirlmagic.

Schools and community organizations have brought me in to present a performance-lectures entitled: Phillis Wheatley:  Voice of Freedom and #SayHerName: Black Women You Should Know.

In addition, I address topics such as overcoming family trauma and poverty; the power of art to make social change, the power of Ase (pronounced ah-shay), and themes selected for Black History Month, and Martin Luther King Day programs.
