Race Issues Speakers

Keynote Speakers Addressing Race Issues

Generations of civil rights activism has led to important legal, political, and social progress, but race relations in the U.S. remains more vital than ever. Addressing persisting race issues in education, housing, the racial wealth gap, and the criminal legal system, the inspirational keynote speakers in this category continue to speak out against the systemic racism and inequities that Black, Indigenous, and people of color still face today. These activists, authors, and educators are popular diversity speakers who can lead audience members in anti-racism training and share their unique experiences and perspectives on the Black Lives Matter movement, racial justice, prejudice and discrimination, and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
