This year's event will feature keynote speaker, Becky Crump and our host and comedian Micah "Bam-Bamm" White.
Becky Crump is the founder and franchise director for Mindful Mornings, a monthly interactive speaker series across cities on subjects related to social good and social justice. Recently, she founded the Giving Wall, an online giving website where those living at or below the poverty level can get help from supporters who buy an unmet need like auto repair, a child's healthcare bill or a work uniform. She serves as director of cultural insights and creative communications for Kuehne + Nagel, a leading logistics company. Previously, she served as founder and consultant at wellwork and as a consultant at the Frontier Project. A clinical integrative nutritionist and seeker of her own personal truths and righteous place in this world, Becky is driven by a belief that we never arrive, we only evolve through the interplay between attention and effort.
Micah "Bam-Bamm" White is the executive director of the Central Virginia African American Chamber of Commerce. Prior to his appointment, White operated RVA Has Talent, which showcases local aspiring entertainers. On the side, he has spent over 20 years in the entertainment industry as a stand-up comedian, host and philanthropist. Through his various efforts, White's mission is simple: to use comedy and entertainment to find common ground by bridging racial, religious, socioeconomic and generational gaps.
