Eddie inspires all of those from elementary students to highly educated activists to be the best they can be. I highly recommend working with and following Eddie anywhere he goes!"

Some Workshop Descriptions

Diversity, Privilege and Leadership: Are We Making Any Progress in the 21st Century

We all have an excellent opportunity to be positive role models, powerful decision makers, and effective agents of change, if we have the tools. Are we making any progress?

America Is Changing: Are You Ready?
This session challenges participants to examine their own biases, behaviors and belief systems. Additionally, they learn how to take action against hatred, bigotry, privilege and oppression. We need more leaders for social justice and equity across America. Do you have the skills and ability to lead?

White Privilege: Getting in on the Conversations
This interactive, informational, challenging and energetic session examines and explores white privilege/oppression and the imperative that those promoting diversity must “get in on the conversations.” Participants will leave with the skills and knowledge necessary to begin addressing issues of white privilege/oppression individually and institutionally.

The N!gga(er) Word: Is There a Message in The Madness?
This session looks at the history of the “N-word" utilizing books, TV shows, film clips and a documentary film. The session challenges participants to examine their personal and professional histories with the N-word, examine when and /or how they were first introduced to the word and to explore the pictures and different feelings associated with the word. We will look at how current events, media, popular music and movies have used the word over the years and if the word has had any impact or influence on the millennial generation. Lastly, the session offers suggestions about the need and importance of understanding the various realities associated with the N-word and recommends how to challenge and encourage all people, but specifically young people, about the ramifications of casual or uninformed usage of this troublesome word. *Please keep a look out for our educational video on The N!gga(er) Word: http://tinyurl.com/n-words2012
