Christian Picciolini is an Emmy Award-winning director and producer, a published author, TEDx speaker, global peace advocate, and a reformed white supremacist. His work and life purpose bear witness to a deep-seated desire to atone for his grisly past, and an urgency to transform the hurts and wounds he inflicted into vehicles for profound healing. Christian tenaciously works to use the redemption he has been offered to make the world a better, more peace-filled place.
On Tuesday, February 27th, the Leadership Legacy Experience in partnership with UConn Hillel will be hosting Christian Picciolini to give his talk on “Life After Hate” as a part of our Legacy Speaker Series.
The Legacy Speaker Series invites local, regional, and national leaders from a multitude of fields and industries to share and explore the concepts and applications of leadership in their areas of expertise. Legacy, with its interdisciplinary, collaborative, and forward-looking approach, has hosted such varied topics as politics, public education, global warming, robotics, genomics, sports broadcasting, civil rights, Parkinson’s research, space exploration, health care and much more. Partnering with schools and colleges across campus, the Legacy Speakers Series has established itself as a program that invites the entire campus community to think, explore, and learn more about important, emerging – and sometimes challenging topics that will affect all of us as individuals, a University, a nation, and a global community.
