TEDxAkron - Dr. Kwame Scruggs - Becoming the Hero Within Our Own Stories

Dr. Scruggs is the Founder and Executive Director of Alchemy Inc. In his talk he discusses how he uses myths and storytelling to engage the young urban adolescent males in his workshops and school programs. He uses myths to remove them from the situation they are in so that they can look at their situation objectively. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
