About the Event
For over thirty years, Dr. Bobby William Austin has worked as a sociologist, author, educator, and CEO of national
nonprofits to strengthen the social fabric of urban communities. His research as the Director of the National
Taskforce on African American Men and Boys led him to develop philanthropic programs that impacted 17,000
African American men and boys in the US.
In his TEDxACU talk, Bobby will challenge our focus on the things that divide us by explaining the importance of
seeking connection with others through public kinship -- a platform for moving forward through sharing experiences,
being present in our interactions, and participating in civic storytelling
