“I want you to leave here inspired and engaged,” John Hope Bryant told the audience.
Dr. Lakeysha Hallmon also provided words of encouragement by saying, “You must be dedicated to your well being. You must be dedicated to truly being your sisters’ and brothers’ keeper in a tangible way. And you must understand that as it is given to you, you must be willing to pour it out.”
