About Clint Smith

Written following the death of Tamir Rice after his pellet gun was mistaken for a weapon, Clint Smith’s TED Talk titled How To Raise a Black Son in America relayed his personal awakening of racial bias as a child in a nighttime water gun fight. A poet, activist, and prison educator, Clint speaks on racial and financial inequality in America, lending his unique voice to the growing cry against intrinsic, deeply ingrained societal racism. In a 2015 short film that premiered online, Clint expanded on the future of storytelling and how it will be instrumental in the fight against inequality.
