South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center is proud to present Shaun Boothe: The Unauthorized Biography Series on Thursday, January 30. Creator Shaun Boothe is an award-winning hip hop artist, TEDx motivational speaker, and founder of Live Your Legacy Academy. The Unauthorized Biography Series is a critically acclaimed musical project celebrating the world’s greatest cultural icons such as Martin Luther King Jr., Bruce Lee, Oprah Winfrey, Nelson Mandela, Malala Yousafzai and more. Each chapter captures the legacy of an influential figure in a documentary-style music video utilizing hip hop. Shaun created this series to entertain, inform, and awaken the greatness within us all. Half TED Talk, half live concert, he uses music, multimedia, and motivation to deliver powerful and transformative messaging. Themes include leadership, overcoming fears and challenges, diversity, equity, the power of acknowledgement, redefining masculinity, and more. According to a Forbes article by Michael Humphrey, Boothe’s presentation teaches us “the critical peaks and valleys of great people, often in surprising ways.” Shaun will also hold a student workshop for the children of South Milwaukee High School earlier in the day.
