“Jewish Born, Jamaican Raised” is a diversity program that pays tribute to the woman that helped raise Michael and his brother Jeff after a drunk driver killed their mother. This humorous but thought provoking program will share with the audience how a Jamaican woman took on a part-time job taking care of two white Jewish boys that turned into a full-time motherhood role. Michael will discuss how he dealt with racism and anti-Semitism throughout his life and how he coped with them.

The audience will discuss issues such as bullying, discrimination and what the human spirit is capable of when we show unconditional love to each other. “Jewish Born Jamaican Raised” is one of those “Hollywood” type stories that out of a tragic car crash came a guardian angel to step into a role of a life time that no one could have expected. The overall goal of the program is for each person to be a stronger individual who will be tolerant of others no matter how different they may be from each other.
