About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  1. Coming from a black point of view.. there is a lower expectation of quality and service from a black organization. I teach and work the idea that "Black" anything has to exceed the accepted levels to compete with most other business. If we embrace that as a 'black' business owner – it would mean our quality and service would be better than our competitors. yeah, that's not fair, but as 'any' (minority) you shouldn't expect fair..
    Show up ready to face battles that some won't ever have to face. It's just the way it is..
    One thing for sure – if you always have MORE than you need – you're ready for whatever.
    My grandfather told this to my father in the 50's.. My son has showed his sons.
    We pass it on and succeed with this understanding.
