Race Relations, Class, Voting Rights
Can We Talk?
Yes, Cleo Scott Brown, author and speaker, actually talks about those subjects. You know-the ones we really should talk about, the ones we really need to talk about but simply don't because they can be quite uncomfortable.
Cleo's company, History Matters Institute, is dedicated to using history to generate insightful and meaningful discussions about race, class, and voting. Whether through books, newsletters, commentary, workshops, or speaking engagements, everything is designed with the goal of understanding, introspection, and change.
Cleo is a gifted speaker, writer, and workshop leader whose talent is presenting sometimes uncomfortable history in a manner that puts audiences at ease and leads them to a place of increased understanding of themselves and others. Weaving in stories for her and her father's life, as presented in her book "Witness to the Truth", Cleo presents a history filled with lessons, wisdom, and inspiration for the current generation.
History offers to us the accumulated knowledge and wisdom of past generations, recorded to protect us from repeating past mistakes.
