Public Speaking

I often speak about multiracial and biracial identity and politics on college campuses, among other issues, and my 1991 essay “Light-Skinned’ded Naps” is (I’m told) still widely used in classrooms across the country. For more information about appearances please feel free to contact me directly at Let’s talk!  You can also reach me via the APB Speaker’s Bureau, for this and many other lecture topics.                    51pc7m-z5VL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

For small group faculty and nonprofit writing workshops contact me directly at My editorial guidance is personalized and highly tailored for each individual participant. I also offer one-on-one consultations by phone/email at a reasonable hourly rate with discounts for nonprofits. We can work something out. I love to see great ideas and want to help get YOUR essays, op-eds and articles published!

Thank you to the Educating for Change Media Literacy workshop at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth for a dynamic and passionate discussion!
