CONVERSITY: Changing the Conversation on Race
Dr. Richard C. Harris brings extensive expertise and experience to platforms and panels when he speaks on racial harmony/diversity issues, leadership and communication.  A university professor and pastor with graduate degrees in pastoral ministries, communication, and adult education, he is best known for his earlier years when he served as the leader of the largest underground terrorist organization in the Midwestern U.S. for several years in the 1970s.  An avowed white supremacist, in 1978, he underwent a dramatic transformation and renounced racism and all ties to the Ku Klux Klan.  He documents his experiences in his book, One Nation Under CURSE  which won the 2012 Reader’s Favorite Award for best non-fiction religion/philosophy book.
