Cleo Scott Brown’s gift is simplifying the complex.
Using history, storytelling, and personal experiences, Cleo’s thought-provoking presentations, keynotes, and writings connect heart and head, creating a transformational understanding of the complexities of race relations, voting, and social injustice. This understanding is essential to creating a better future.
Cleo is by no means typical.
Cleo’s breadth of personal experiences provide a depth of understanding and value you won’t find in many speakers—from cross-burnings and shootings while her parents were involved in a federal voting rights case, to Jim Crow, school and corporate integration, and HBCU experience. Her work experience includes corporate management and non-profit and education leadership plus over 20 years working with youth as a volunteer.
Cleo provides wisdom for today.
Her presentations and her books, “Witness to the Truth” (University of South Carolina Press) and “Raceology 101”, present history and personal stories, without bitterness or anger, filled with wisdom and answers to questions that plague America today.
