(Book signing to follow in the lobby)
With the promises and hope of the "Yes We Can" message, America faces the challenges of high expectations, meeting realities of impoverished education systems, violence, poverty, and all forms of discrimination. Richard Lapchick communicates powerful messages to motivate people to get involved with breaking the cycle of despair faced by too many of America's youth by graphically laying out issues confronting so many young people. He inspires audiences to take action on any level possible, whether it be one-on-one or with a larger group.
Richard Lapchick is the Chair of the DeVos Sport Business Management Program at the University of Central Florida. He has written fourteen books, including his 2009 book entitled "100 Trailblazers: Great Women Athletes Who Opened Doors for Future Generations."
