What a fantastic night! Mikki was absolutely amazing this evening. She connected so well with our students and broader audience and laid down essential truths and insights with such great wit and clarity. The private session afterwards with selected students went very well, too. It was a great pleasure and privilege to welcome Mikki to Simpson College virtually; we hope she can pay a visit in person someday soon! It was wonderful to work with you, as well. Thank you for making the entire process so smooth and rewarding
Everything was great. Mikki was accessible and terrific. I've gotten lots of positive feedback from our community about her presentation!

Mikki Kendall is an incisive thinker and electrifying speaker! We were thrilled to have her as a panelist at our pre-election event (2020) on the importance of intersectional approaches that center racial, gender, and social justice in contemporary politics.

Thank you so much for joining us! That was one of the most engaged Q&A sessions we’ve had…and I can’t thank you enough for taking the extra time to answer all of the group’s questions…..even some of our quieter, somewhat less engaged students jumped in. I received several texts and emails last night praising the talk – people really appreciated the combination of theory and concrete examples you offered. Looking forward to your next book!

Mikki did an AMAZING job representing the issues and I believe as a result people will learn about food injustice, but more importantly change their attitudes and behavior!
Mikki.....You are amazing -- such a good interview. Inspiring, motivating, thought-provoking and warm. All of those things. Thanks very much for your time.
