US United Live: UNITY IN ACTION
Ken Nwadike, Jr. (the Free Hugs Project) and Sheriff Chris Swanson (Flint / Genesee County, MI) bring their authentic, fun and at times intense conversations on unity and social justice from the Black and Blue Podcast to live audiences. Over the past 10 years, Ken and Chris have literally risked their lives to create UNITY and peace. They will share their stories and engage students in the civil discourse necessary for us all to move forward. After an energizing video introduction. the two will dive right into the real dialogue that will make unity cool. The program brings the audience into the conversation with interactive, real time polling and live Q&A. The audience will be shocked to learn about the real life experiences of their fellow students in the room.
To extend our message beyond the event, the discussion will also be recorded and shared on the Black and Blue Podcast and our social media channels
Format: 75-90 minute Interactive Keynote w Q&A
The audience will leave with:
- A few surprises and a new awareness of how their peers have been impacted by social justice struggles.
- An understanding of the importance of walking in another’s shoes before reaching judgment.
- The audience will gain both the inspiration and the tools necessary to be more respectful towards one another and to participate in civil discourse.
- US United will partner with campus leaders to create a local chapter of our movement and help students bring unity to their own campus. They will also bring little bit of US United swag to show off that an audience member is ready to GET UNIFIED!
