"Khariyyah as worked with Put Ur Play On Production (PUPO) as a speaker and was phenomenal! As we produced events regarding HIV/AIDS awareness and black history her delivery was insightful, gave pause, and kept our viewers wanting more. Her energy kept the audience engaged and her message kept them thinking. PUPO will definitely work with Khariyyah and again and would recommend her for any speaking engagements!"
Saleemah Jones, Founder of Put Ur Play on Productions
"Khariyyah is a great community resource that came to talk to my organization about how to find grants. Her presentation was great because it came from a place of experience which she gained first hand by doing the work herself and succeeding at it. The group left the presentation feeling inspired and more knowledgeable than before she came. I would definitely recommend her to come speak at events that involve building community relationships, accessing funds needed for community activities, community restoration and more. It was a pleasure having her and I would definitely hire her again!"
Barry Victor, Founder of Power 100
"Khariyyah is one of the most engaging and influential thinkers and speakers in today's climate. Every time I hear and see her speak I learn more, I am inspired, and most importantly I do more. She is not only a wordsmith but she gives solutions to issues that are plaguing our community like education, gun violence, issues with our environment, and how to steer our youth on a positive path. When I say our community, I mean the world, these issues are not specific to one type of people, but to all of us. Khariyyah Shabazz is a leader and a voice we desperately need now!"
