The Unauthorized Biography Series is a celebration of greatness. As a youth speaker Shaun Boothe has created this series not just to entertain and inform but to awaken the greatness within us all. In this half TED Talk, half live concert performance, Shaun uses music, multimedia and motivation to deliver the powerful and transformative life lessons of Barack Obama, Martin Luther King JR, and Oprah Winfrey in a way that truly sticks. Some themes include leadership, success strategies, overcoming fears and challenges, transitioning, diversity and equity, the power of acknowledgement, redefining masculinity, and more. 

 
“The power of hip hop is in the stories we choose to tell. Our stories can either build us up or break us down.”
