Speaking

I’ve given presentations and workshops for organizations including IndieWebCamp, UNC World View, the Wake County Public School System, Dare County Schools, the American Association of School Librarians, the North Carolina School Library Media Association, North Carolina Central University, the North Carolina Technology in Education Society, East Carolina University, the North Carolina Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the North Carolina English Teachers Association, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the North Carolina Humanities Council, Pitt County Schools, the Gilder Lehrman Institute, and the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching.

Please note that when invited to communicate with the media, on a panel, as a speaker, as a jurist, or as a presenter in any capacity that isn’t a one-on-one interview or presentation I have developed myself, I require that the other panelists, speakers, jurists, or presenters include women and/or non-binary people (of any race) and people of color (of any gender).

(Thanks to Austin Kleon for the availability verbiage and to Riot New Media for the inclusion verbiage.)

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.

We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
