Julia Hare is a 2 time AALBC.com Bestselling Author
Dr. Julia Hare is widely regarded as one of the most dynamic motivational speakers on the nation's podiums today. The Black Think Tank has decided to turn her loose on the lecture circuit this fall. If you have ever had the satisfaction of hearing this sista speak, you already know why she is gaining so much notice and popularity at conference gatherings and campuses across America and even creating excitement in other lands. The largest black newspaper in London, The Voice, recently dubbed this genteel woman of class and charm a “lady Malcolm X” in a feature story of how she is, quote, “setting the black world on fire” after she electrified the Tavis Smiley “State of the Black Union Conference” with her breakout blast of velvety tough-talk about the difference between “black leaders” and “leading blacks.”
YouTube clip picked it up and clocked a million hits from around the world. In an editorial beside its two-page feature story, The Voice said further that “We Need Black Leaders Not Leading Blacks,” and “thanks to Internet sites like YouTube, Dr. Hare’s powerful and at times amusing comments on modern black life have reached out to people everywhere. In Britain, many in the know’ are starting to talk about her…Her comments about the differences between black leaders’ and leading blacks’ absolutely strikes the nail on the head…The likes of Martin Luther King have been replaced by media appointed leading blacks’ who have got to their positions of influence by pretending to the establishment that they have the ear of black people."
