Dr. Steve Perry
Educator. Speaker. Author.
Dr. Steve Perry is one of most sought after educators in America. Widely respected by grassroots community members and internationally renowned leaders, his charismatic and compelling voice is an inspiration.
 
He is the educator Oprah Winfrey, Sean "P-Diddy" Combs, Bishop TD Jakes and Steve Harvey call on to offer insight to parents and children. A diverse array of politicians and groups, from the Urban League to ALEC, even President Donald Trump, have reached out to Dr. Perry to better understand what matters to parents.

Dr. Perry opened his third school, helped Steve Harvey write his new book "Jump," has spoken in over 79 communities and completed his sixth book "Transparanting" within the past 12 months.  His impact is profound and varied and showing no signs of slowing down.

The word most often used to describe Dr. Perry is passionate. His authenticity is a welcomed addition to any discussion rooted in improving children's lives and the community. His skills are hard-fought and have been bestowed from his rough childhood all the way up through his graduation from an Ivy League school.  There's a richness in his concepts that foster an intriguing point of view on the modern American family. 

Dr. Steve Perry's unique and powerful voice is respected and has been featured on MSNBC, Fox, CNN, Al Jazeera, TV One, BET and NBC as well as on the Oprah Winfrey network in multiple shows.  His courage and piercing insights provides a fascinating perspective that is not often found in public discourse.  Too often race, class, gender and political affiliations mute others voices. Dr. Perry fearlessly speaks from the heart, which births unpredictability. 

Dr. Steve Perry is the voice of a generation, a people's champion who has been fighting for disadvantaged children and families for 30 years. Passionate and surprisingly funny, Dr. Steve Perry is a man worth listening to.
