Event Description

The Tanager Place Speaker Series is proud to present nationally acclaimed Harvard University educator and author, Brandon P. Fleming on February 5th. You are invited to hear Fleming’s inspiring story of struggle, success, and service as he transformed his life as a college dropout to becoming an award-winning educator through literature and debate—all by the age of twenty-seven.

As the Founder/CEO of the Harvard Diversity Project, Fleming leads an executive staff and board that has raised over a million dollars to enroll over 100 students of color into Harvard’s international summer debate residency on full scholarship. Fleming’s story has inspired and impacted thousands of lives in places ranging from federal prisons to global platforms such as the United Nations General Assembly.

The first 100 registrants will receive a copy of Fleming’s book: MISEDUCATED: A Memoir.

The book will be available for pickup at Tanager Place – 2309 C Street SW, Cedar Rapids, IA 52404.
