LeDerick Horne, labeled as neurologically impaired in third grade, defies any and all labels. He is a dynamic spoken-word poet, a tireless advocate for all people with disabilities, an inspiring motivational speaker, a bridge builder between learners and leaders across the United States and around the world, and an African American husband and father who serves as a role model for all races, genders, and generations. LeDerick is the grandson of one of New Jersey's most prominent civil rights leaders and uses his gift for spoken-word poetry as the gateway to larger discussions on equal opportunity, pride, self-determination, and hope for people with disabilities. His workshops, keynote speeches, and performances reach thousands of students, teachers, legislators, policymakers, business leaders, and service providers each year. He regularly addresses an array of academic, government, social, and business groups and has had appearances at the White House, the United Nations, Harvard University, the National Association of State Directors of Special Education, and the Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Alabama State Departments of Education. His work addresses the challenges of all disabilities, uniting the efforts of diverse groups in order to achieve substantive, systemic change.

Part lounge, part studio, the Deep Dive Den (D3) invites attendees to learn from educational leaders. One of the goals of the deeper learning conference is to propel the deeper learning movement by connecting attendees to inspirational ideas and people. Den talks aim to be a conversational style talk where a pair of educational leaders interview one another about a topic that is of importance to their organization, the deeper learning movement or perhaps to the future of education. No slide decks no prepared talks–just conversations on what matters most.
