National Director of The She Said Project

“Dr. Tanisha King is a powerful and engaging speaker.  I first saw her as emcee of a Social Justice Awards dinner and I couldn’t take my eyes off her.  I immediately knew that I wanted to cast her as a featured speaker in the 2019 production of “That’s What She Said” in Champaign-Urbana.  Dr. King shared a captivating story of her life, enlightening the audience as to what it was like to grow up on the South Side of Chicago and find her way to maturity, independence and success. She honored the women who showed her support along the way and demonstrated to everyone in the audience that you can achieve anything you set your mind to.  Her delivery was passionate and deliberate and she brought the entire audience on a journey with her until the end when hundreds of women stood to cheer for her. I am grateful to know Dr. King and would encourage anyone to find a way to hear her at a speaking engagement. You will be transformed.”
