A continuation of Dr. Moore’s very well-received presentation last year, this year’s dialogue will be centered on the question, “Are we in a post-racial society?”

Eddie Moore, Jr. has his Ph.D. in Education/Social Foundations from University of Iowa, his Master of Arts in Education Administration from Loras College, and his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Cornell College. Recognized nationally and internationally as a dynamic and committed presenter, Eddie seeks to provide ideas, possibilities, opportunities, and the motivation needed for making creative and positive contributions to a fast-paced and evolving society.

Dr. Moore currently serves as Director of Diversity at Brooklyn Friends School in Brooklyn, NY. Prior to holding his position at Brooklyn Friends School, Dr. Moore was Assistant Dean of Students and Director of Intercultural Life at Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa. In 1999, he founded the White Privilege Conference, now in its 15th year.

In 1996, Dr. Moore founded America & MOORE Research & Consulting, a research and consulting firm. The team, which consists of several on-call presenters in addition to Mr. Moore, has given interactive and motivating presentations to students K-college. Presentations have also been given to parents, community members and organizations, and city and state government managers. The presentations focus on issues of diversity, race relations, community, stereotypes and self-esteem.

Dr. Moore’s challenging interactive presentations leave participants with constructive questions about their personal beliefs, prejudices and biases, and ideas about the way to construct positive changes in personal and institutional thinking, policies, and behaviors.
