8 Awesome Public Speakers to Book in 2021 & Beyond

On the hunt for incredible public speakers for your next event? It’s a competitive industry with so many public speakers to choose from, but I’m here to help. Today, I’ll be sharing eight incredible public speakers to know, refer to, and book in 2021 and beyond.

Challenges for Black Public Speakers

The speaking business is a big industry, and it is tough—especially for Black speakers. Unless it’s Black History Month, MLK Day, or something to do with Diversity/Inclusion—Black speakers rarely get their fair share of opportunities. Even the Harvard Business Review cites: Too many speakers at events and conferences are white men.

(Hey, public speakers, don’t miss this post about how to get media attention!)

But Speakers Magazine is helping to change that by making known super black speakers. As I discuss in this post about why black speakers must own our narrative:

“We as black people have gone through a lot in this country—from slavery to reconstruction to Jim Crow to Civil Rights to now. We are our ancestors’ wildest dreams. But we still have a long way to go—especially since the current political climate has ignited the popularity of “white nationalism” and mistreatment of minorities.”

It is my mission, vision and calling to help book more black speakers. I’ve promoted black speakers and authors for more than two decades. And the time is really ripe for more black speakers to take the stage and dominate more podiums. They have a message to share that the world desperately needs RIGHT now in the climate.
