TLC 2012 Keynote Speakers


Daniel Black is a native of Kansas City, Kansas, yet spent the majority of his childhood years in Blackwell, Arkansas. He is an associate professor at his alma mater, Clark Atlanta University, where he now aims to provide an example to young Americans of the importance of self-knowledge and communal commitment. He is the author of They Tell Me of a Home and The Sacred Place.
A. Faye Adams-Taylor, a native of Greensboro, North Carolina is short in stature but a commanding fireball that stands ten feet tall when she graces a stage to display her God-given talent to speak, act, or emcee.  Her second-grade teacher, Mrs. Gertrude Morrow recognized this talent in her when she was only seven years old. Her mother saw to it that her performance skills were developed by her participation in public speaking. Thus was the beginning of a remarkable career as an actress, director, poet, and commentator. She is the author of Whispered Sins.
