Event description

Description




Change is always discussed and planned during an election year. Right now, across the entire country, people are engaging and expressing their views for change. Americans are laying out their demands on both sides of the aisle, and they are coming to the table with the potential leaders of tomorrow to exchange views.

Ms. Carrie Sheffield has been Founder and Editorial Director at Bold Media, Inc. since 2015. Ms. Sheffield is a senior writer for Opportunity Lives and contributor to Forbes. She is passionate about storytelling to empower and connect others.

Mr. Malone will speak with us about his new book “Those Who Give a Damn”: A Manual for Making a Difference. In Chapter 3 of his new book, to talked about how he realizes that while he has inspired others to lay responsibility at the feet of elected officials, that he is not immune to the same criticisms. This is where there’s a marked change in his written columns and speeches at events. Duvalier understands that he too has been given a platform; and he is equally as responsible to use his platform to create the change that he has championed.



Those Who Give A Damn’ is a story of struggle, adversity and the will to succeed. Join Duvalier Malone as he details how he overcame tragedy in the best way possible: in the service of his fellow man and woman. Duvalier seeks to give a manual on how to serve humanity. As a small town boy who chased his dreams and found the path to manhood that was forged by the footsteps of those who paved the way, Duvalier was blessed with the tools to give back to his community. He now wants to share those tools with others, by showing through example how to rise above one’s circumstances and achieve in spite of the hardships and obstacles that lay in one’s way. While agonizing over his own place in the world, Duvalier discovered that his measure was hidden in his own courage, strength and hope. This moment of achievement is chronicled in the memoir of this community servant who wishes to inspire others the way he was inspired by those who went before him.



“In today’s political environment it is important that we use our voices and circle of influence to initiate change within our community said Malone.” If you’re planning to meet him and get a copy of his book then details about where the signing will be held are below.
