“The Power of Vulnerability”
featuring Brené Brown
“Brené Brown studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share.”
Watch it early» (but then you’ll be spoiled).
“To This Day…for the Bullied and Beautiful”
featuring Shane Koyczan
*some adult language is present in this video
“By turn hilarious and haunting, poet Shane Koyczan puts his finger on the pulse of what it’s like to be young and … different. “To This Day,” his spoken-word poem about bullying, captivated millions as a viral video (created, crowd-source style, by 80 animators). Here, he gives a glorious, live reprise with backstory and violin accompaniment by Hannah Epperson.”
Watch it early» (keep a box of Kleenex nearby).
