Speaking Gigs

Because someone has to tell everyone the truth.

For schools, companies, communities, advocates, and churches.

I spoke to my first crowd of 5,000
at age 17.

As a speechwriter,
my messages have reached millions.

And I haven't shut up since.

Education Innovation & Entrepreneurship 

Whether working as a professor, a Director of a School, or a speechwriter for Time Magazine's  "University President of the Year,"  Dr. McKain has spent twenty years revolutionizing his (sometimes not so small) corners of higher education.​

Digital Rights are Civil Rights: Race and Tech

International juried art exhibition and civic forum.
Minneapolis, MN and online.  February 2021.

The murder of George Floyd made it clear to the world that systemic racism is a life or death issue for people of color in our country.  This issue has only become more pressing in light of recent technological developments:  racist facial recognition software; predictive policing programs that target minorities;  and discriminatory algorithms (in employment, healthcare, education, and criminal justice) that violate our privacy, threaten free speech, and replace human judgment with encoded systemic inequity.

Thank you to our partners;

ACLU MN; Native Youth Arts Collective; North Central University; the Institute for Digital Humanity; the POSTME Coalition; and City Councilman Steve Fletcher.
