Monti Washington is an author, speaker, actor, playwright, and activist. As a leadership and diversity speaker, he has spoken to thousands of students on campuses nationwide, promoting the importance of diversity and inclusion. Monti grew up in deplorable conditions, raised on the streets in poverty; suffering abuse in multiple foster homes; and struggling with depression. Motivated by his personal experiences with racism, classism, and prejudice, Monti has passionately devoted his life to spreading a message of hope through inclusion, understanding, and acceptance.
Everyone knows that all lives matter, but the question is do they matter equally? “Which Lives Matter” is an intense, inclusive, educational lecture, intended to build bridges, not walls. Speaker, poet, and activist Monti Washington helps students explore the history, conditioning, stereotypes, and racism that separates and divides our community and nation. He addresses the issues from a social media and social justice perspective. With spoken word poetry, personal stories, and social media examples, students will learn how they can make a difference on their campus and in their community. By the conclusion of this lecture, students will see that their voices matter, their opinions matter, and most importantly, that all their lives matter.
