Mary B Morrison
Author, Entertainer, Advocate for Women's Rights
In her novels, women overcome heart-wrenching challenges. Female empowerment is the primary focus in all of Morrison’s works. An unapologetic voice with 26 books and over 3,000,000 copies in print, Morrison strives to eradicate double-standards. To stand in her presence is to be intoxicated with confidence. Mary (Honey B) Morrison shines, like a light in every room. To our camera's she is an embodied balance of what the World desires of women, and what there fear most about women. We are excited to have her speak to our students on "Speaking with Confidence" which will also get our young people a trip to beautiful downtown Atlanta, to learn about podcasting and radio.
Healing Her Hurt, Incorporated is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that Morrison founded to assist marginalized women and girls. Tax-deductible donations are welcomed. To learn more about Healing Her Hurt, Incorporated please contact Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Actress | Producer | Philanthropist
She is, perhaps, still best known from the film Player's Club, and more recently Anyala Vanzant's Fix My Life, and From the Bottom Up, but Chrystale Wilson is truly a visual artist. She embodies creator energy and is well known as a survivor of the tragedy. These gifts, make her a perfect producer for Voices of Foster Care Documentary because it is all about the co-creation of a future that defies the odds. Chrystale Wilson knows a lot about that. Wilson is beautiful to behold. She is relatable and is always camera ready. It will be a joy to follow her direction and to get her in front of the camera. We envision a bus trip to P.A.W.S. the "No-Kill" Animal Shelter, where Wilson volunteers.
Wilson is an advocate for the better treatment of our elderly and through a self-funded and organized annual event “Injured Angel Mixer”; Chrystale encourages her friends to donate products, which she personally distributes to inner-city nursing homes during the holidays “Gifts for Grandparents.”
