Keith Jones will inspire, educate, entertain and keep it very real. As an African American man with a disability – cerebral palsy – Keith has navigated, and continues to overcome, the perceptions of the world around him. Never one to shy away from those who try to deny his humanity, Keith shares stories from his life that will challenge his audiences to examine their perceptions about disability, race, equity and inclusion.
Jones is a nationally known advocate that has spoken in various capacities and venues around the U.S. and Oregon including the Northwest Down Syndrome Association’s annual conference, All Born-In and the Confederation of Oregon School Administrator’s (COSA) annual conference in Seaside, OR. He brings a high-caliber comedic style that is all his own and keeps this topic light, yet, relevant.
Thanks to Sammy’s Place, the Kiwanis Club of Tillamook, and the Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church for supporting these opportunities within our community.
