MLK Jr. Week: Join us for a MLK Jr. Week lecture presented by Obasi Shaw.
What’s the difference between sheer luck and calculated risk-taking? How can you capitalize on your unique voice and position to make a difference in the world? What does it truly mean to seize your moment? Come hear thoughts, advice, and some quality rap from a rapper, writer, software engineer, and Harvard graduate who’s managed to seize his own fair share of moments.

The thesis, a 10-song rap album called Liminal Minds, received high praise as both a rap album and a work of poetry, and can be found on all major streaming platforms. Obasi has given talks at universities, high schools, and a Fortune 100 company, as well as an interview with Sway in the Morning. He is passionate about teaching diverse groups how to cultivate and embrace their unique talents and leverage them for success in imaginative ways.
