My lived experience as a mom and academic (mamademic) provide me with the unique ability to give talks and lead seminars in the areas of social justice at the intersections of parenting and teaching. While I am open to keynote speaker options, I prefer to facilitate seminars that can take place over a 4-8 hour time span, however, they can be tailored to your group’s needs. Seminars provide me with the opportunity to offer hands-on activities for the participants and help us all learn from one another.
I currently offer four seminar topics:
How To Raise An Advocate: This interactive seminar is a mini version of my popular online course, RaA 101: Exposing the Three Ps – Privilege, Prejudice, and Pride. Participants will be led on a journey of discovery where we will tackle what it really means to have privilege and why prejudice and racism are in fact not synonymous.
Why Intersectional Feminism Matters: This seminar is a mini version of my online course Intersectional Feminism 101. We will cover what exactly intersectionality means and why we all need to integrate it into our lives through discussions and activities focusing on race, sexuality, and social class.
Revolutionary Parenting: Are you really raising free children? This talk is specifically geared towards parents raising Black children in America. We will discuss the importance of raising them to not only take pride in their heritage but confront the ways in which we hold them back due to the ways we’ve internalized white supremacy ourselves.
Social Justice Advocacy in the Writing Classroom: Long before I became a mother, I taught freshman composition courses at a local university. It was in those classrooms where I first realized I could enact change. This seminar provides you with my tried and true techniques on using writing to promote social justice advocacy.
Seminars range in price from $2500 – $7500 depending on the number of people attending and the length of the time of the seminar. This price does not include travel and/or accommodations. You must pay a non-refundable deposit to secure your chosen date.
As of March 2017, I am accepting speaking engagements for May, June (Atlanta-area only), late-October, November, and December.
