LeDerik Horne

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 word, 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, policy makers, 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.
