Keynote Speaker: George M. Johnson
Our event is being headlined by award-winning and New York Times Bestselling Author, George M. Johnson. Their books “All Boys Aren’t Blue” and “We Are Not Broken” are critically acclaimed, but have been under scrutiny and challenged for including frank discussions and content relating to race, sexual orientation, and gender identity. They will be providing our keynote address with a Q&A, along with a stand alone workshop and book signing.
