Chris will share his expertise on how communities in both big cities and small towns can be united. Chris will explain the differences between listening to argue a point versus listening to understand perspectives. Whether they agree with their counterparts or not, the audience will surely be equipped with a different perspective on privilege and racism, and receive key takeaways they can use in their everyday life to be more empathetic. His heart-warming story of how love conquers hate will leave the audience inspired to be the change that they wish to see in the world.

Chris Singleton is a former professional athlete drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 2017. Following the loss of his mother in a racially motivated mass shooting, Chris has now become an inspirational speaker and best-selling author who has shared his message of unity and racial reconciliation with clients such as: Microsoft, Biogen, Houston Texans, Washington Wizards, etc. He shares with over 50 organizations and over 30,000 students annually and resides with his spouse Mariana and their two sons in Charleston, SC.
