Please note, to keep our guests safe at the in-person event, we are requiring all guests be vaccinated and wear a mask while inside unless eating or drinking.

This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Richard Antoine White (R.A.W.), a world-class symphony musician and college professor. As a child experiencing poverty and homelessness in Baltimore, Richard slept wherever he could. Despite enormous challenges, he went on to become the first African American in the world to receive a Doctorate in Music for Tuba Performance and has been profiled by NPR and the CBS Evening News. His life is the subject of a documentary film, entitled R.A.W. Tuba.

You won’t want to miss this unforgettable experience as Richard shares his journey from the Baltimore streets to the musical stage and beyond. Richard’s story will challenge and inspire our guests to build a more equitable world in which every person has a chance to thrive.
