For more than two decades, Bryant K. Smith has been teaching people to tap into their potential in order to maximize their work, school, athletic or personal experiences for the benefit of themselves, their community, team or organization.

“Bryant is very engaging, entertaining and very knowledgeable about Black History in the United States,” said Brandyn Woodard, director of intercultural life at Central. “The last time he was on campus, after an hour-and-a-half presentation, people were playing games and didn’t want him to be finished with his presentation. He’ll be a great way to close out Black History Month at Central.”

A seasoned college administrator and professor, Smith is an expert at helping people examine issues of difference. Smith had spoken and presented at hundreds of national conferences, universities and corporate events.

Smith is the founder and creator of Life Station male development workshop and The Remix Hip Hop Leadership Institute. He is the author of “Black No Blind,” a book of social commentary on race relations in the United States. Smith’s newest title is “For My Sons & Brothers,” a compilation of letters to all sons and brothers and the people that care about them.

Smith will give his presentation at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
