XanJo Media, LLC is the umbrella company under which most of my consulting falls.
I serve as the current Director of Education for Black Pflugerville. I oversee the organization's student advocacy efforts; serve as the liaison to the district and a voice on equity concerns; and the creation of a Black parents network, which supports and empowers parents to advocate on behalf of their own children.
Tapped to serve as the National Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division Vice President for Public Affairs for the 2019-2020 term.
I serve as a member of the Communications Advisory Committee on Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education, American Council on Education.
I recently partnered HBCU Digest to convene the 2016 HBCU Executive Media Training Institute, formerly HBCU Week. The event annually draws over 300 executives, faculty members, students and alumni from historically Black colleges and universities around the country and features a signature media training seminar and annual awards ceremony.
I recently convened a town hall conversation in Philadelphia that brought leaders and policy makers together to discuss the vitality of the nation's historically Black colleges and universities. (Click image to watch recorded session.)
I serve as a volunteer copy editor for the Journal of African American Males in Education.
In conjunction with my role as editor of HBCU Digest, I worked with students from Florida A&M University's School of Communications on developing their news writing and reporting skills and preparing articles for publication.
I volunteered to help students in Howard University's School of Communications with their coverage of the 2012 Presidential Elections. My service included editing copy, providing feedback on additional reporting needed, doling out photo assignments, and assisting students with actual structuring of articles. Though this was a one-time event, I have remained in contact with the faculty and have assisted with other projects on an as-needed basis.
