AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST
Barry Bradford is a a former National Teacher Of The Year. His work has won him awards from the President, Congress, and major Civil Rights groups, and he has been interviewed by nearly every major media outlet including The Today Show, The New York Times, U.S. News And World Report, ABC, CBS, and NBC Evening News, The Voice of America, The Washington Post, Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, and C-SPAN. Additionally Barry has garnered international attention through The Times Of London and Chinese National Television. His speaking style has been called “dramatic, entertaining and powerful.”

Barry has been featured on the front page of the Chicago Tribune, The Chicago Sun-Times, and the Chicago Daily Herald, in his hometown of Chicago. Recognized by the Organization of American Historians as a Distinguished Lecturer, Barry has been praised for his “funny and brilliantly crafted presentations”. “I've presented to diverse groups throughout the United States, and what I've found is that if you want people to remember your message, they need to feel your message," says Barry. To that end, Barry brings humor, pathos, intrigue, and deeply compelling stories to all his keynotes and workshops.

Barry made history as the leader of the team that reopened the Mississippi Burning case and brought the murderer to justice. His commitment to justice and belief in the power of every individual to affect history led him to spearhead a movement to convince the State of Mississippi to clear the name of Civil Rights martyr Clyde Kennard. Barry's success in these high-profile cases along with his many experiences, awards, and recognitions bring conviction and passion to his messages of leadership and personal empowerment. He is a former National Teacher Of The Year, Illinois State Teacher Of The Year and a winner of the prestigious Golden Apple Award For Excellence In Teaching.

When Barry is not traveling throughout the USA speaking to colleges, universities and businesses, Barry lives in the Chicago suburbs with his wife, Mindy, an international corporate executive, their two children, E.J. and Zack, and two rescue dogs, Snooky and Gigi. Barry's Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Communications is from Goddard College (Plainfield, VT) and his Master's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies is from DePaul University (Chicago).

Our audience loved his "I Love PB&J" presentation. And that's really saying something as he was the closing speaker of our 3+ day conference and it was Sunday afternoon at 4pm!
