Stacey Abrams, Yale Law School graduate and former minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, political leader, author, and founder of Fair Fight Action, will be in Charlotte on November 17 at Ovens Auditorium and Durham on November 18 for a special speaking engagement aiming to entertain, inform, and empower. On the 12-city tour, Abrams will engage in candid conversations and give insights on politics, leadership, entrepreneurship, and social justice with questions from the audience.
Abrams gained national attention in 2018 losing a narrow Governor’s race to Brian Kemp. After accusations of voter suppression, she started the voting rights non-profit organization, Fair Fight Action.
The two-time New York Times best-selling author (Our Time is Now and Lead from the Outside) also starred in the documentary All In: The Fight For Democracy, examining issues of voter suppression in America. She was also recently awarded the inaugural Social Justice Impact Award from the NAACP Image Awards in 2021.
