Description

*****Due to the coronavirus outbreak in KC ....This event is postponed until summer. TBD on actual date but please keep up to date with us. We will update the time/day as soon as we can! ****

Thank you to the UMKC Multicultural Student Affairs department for partnering with Laitno Arts Foundation for this important event. Speakers - there will be a stage, mic and availability for a presentation.

I was part of the TedxYouthKC event in 2019, sharing my “Authentically Me” story. Due to the opportunity to experience this phenomenal space of story telling, I want to provide a space for POC voices to have a space to tell their stories.
