Anti-Racism, Anti-Bullying Author & Youth Speaker

Creating a world free of racism and bullying

As someone with diverse experiences and a passion for bringing people together, Kinota knows from his own life experiences that conversations about racism and bullying can be difficult, but they need to happen.


He believes that when we speak to each other with respect and compassion, that we can deliver powerful change in ways that we never thought possible: 


Together, we can make this happen. 

Kinota helps students learn how to 


  • Unite as a community and celebrate the uniqueness of every individual 

  • Grow together and look past our differences in a way that makes us stronger

  • Learn how to help one another and how to guide the next generation

Written Reviews

"Conversations like these made me realize that racism is real because we hear from people who actually experience it. We can better empathize and do something about it."
