Told through a Hamilton-style performance, in the Unauthorized Biography Series, award-winning hip hop artist and TEDx speaker Shaun Boothe pours his talent into a presentation designed to motivate young audiences using rap songs that chronicle the extraordinary lives of cultural icons. Blending a range of approaches calibrated to resonate with students, Shaun delivers high-grade food for
thought that inspires as it entertains. His engaging take on the trails blazed by cultural giants like MLK and Bob Marley imbues students with the courage to find their own paths.

By “learning from the greats,” students can examine their own strengths and goals, and take away actionable lessons with which to energize their lives. Shaun’s unique talk, interspersed with musical performances from his acclaimed Unauthorized Biography Series, infuses the greatest stories of our time with the contagious energy of hip hop delivery.

Rather than sugar coating the lives of people like Muhammad Ali, Oprah, and Nelson Mandela, Shaun encourages identification with their stories by highlighting the struggles that gave their achievements meaning. The multimedia program includes video projection, and is pan-curricular, touching on history, social studies, character education, the performing and literary arts, and music.
