January 2018

Quote of the Month

"Never be limited by other people’s limited imagination” - Dr. Mae Jemison, first African-American female astronaut 

Tip of the Month

For informative speaking, explain the importance of the topic. Why should the audience listen? Will this information improve their lives in some meaningful way? Especially with a captive--involuntary--audience, a speaker must establish a connection between their topic and the interests of the audience. (Adopted from University of Pittsburg) 

Speech of the Month

Speech: Yara Shahidi acceptance speech for Young, Gifted, and Black Award at Black Girls Rock!
