Part of being human is being inspired.™
Experiencing ordinary people living extraordinary lives shows us what is possible. When we see "greats" and can see ourselves in them, we find ourselves realizing, "I can do that. I can be that." Details HERE.
Through this live speaker series, we amplify the voices Heroes and Sheroes who have achieved greatness and who are also people of color. These leaders are authors, historians or history makers with uplifting stories to tell.
Through this speaker series, we bring together an interactive audience of young people to have direct access to these great leaders. The idea is to inspire our young people to their own greatness. To have them say, "I can see myself in this person. I can be that. I can do that. I can be a CEO. I can be an inventor. I can tell my story. I can change the world."
