SpeakOut: From The Heart


"SpeakOut: From the Heart" is a powerful and urgent new series that immerses you in the personal and inspirational stories of our renowned speakers, revealing the beating heart behind their social justice work. In these intimate conversations, speakers share their journeys, their battles, and their unwavering dedication to creating a more just and compassionate world.


Join us for the next edition of "SpeakOut: From the Heart," an intimate and personal conversation with Tim Wise. You may have heard one of his powerful talks, read one of his engaging books or essays, or seen his incisive commentaries on CNN. Antiracism educator and writer Tim Wise has, for some three decades, been an outspoken advocate for racial justice. He’s spoken at over 1500 college and high school campuses and presented at hundreds of conferences, companies, government agencies, and community groups.

Tim is also a prolific essayist and author and his latest book–his ninth–Dispatches from the Race War, has been called “a bracing call to action” (Publishers Weekly) for white people to “recognize their own role in co-creating a fair, inclusive, truly democratic society” (Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow).

So what led Tim to this work and how does he keep going, especially in challenging times? What inspires him and gives him hope even when change seem impossible? Join us for the next edition of SpeakOut: From the Heart, an intimate and personal conversation with Tim Wise. You’ll see another side of the man who has been called “A vanilla brother in the tradition of John Brown” (Cornel West), and “…a thorn in the side of white supremacists (Dr. Ray Winbush).
