A creative and insightful speaker, Art has the unique ability to connect with any audience through his genuine style, thought provoking ideas, and humor.
Born on the south side of Chicago, Art grew up in a middle-class neighborhood consisting of police officers, firefighters and other laborers. Although he was raised in one of the most diverse cities in the country, his surroundings were largely segregated by race. This experience of being raised in an area still grappling everyday with racism and discrimination is an experience drawn upon often in his workshops.
