Inspiring Speaker Grabs Student Attention

Motivational speaker, rapper, college professor, author and talk show host Dr. Omekongo Dibinga spoke to high school students about being an "Upstander", not a "Bystander". After speaking to the entire student body over two assemblies, Dr. Dibinga presented two different workshops to more than 100 student leaders and spoke with the high school faculty about "micro-aggressions" and ways to deal with them in the classroom. Here excerpts from Dr. Dibinga's presentation on our Tusker Talk podcast.
