Dr. Steve Perry has become a national icon in the education revolution, a change agent who is tireless in his fight for providing equal and competitive opportunities for children who otherwise would not have a voice. His mission is simple, high-quality education with college bound opportunities for children in poverty. It is his belief that in order to best educate a child you must treat them and their family as your family. His passion, advocacy and commitment to education can also be seen through his additional works; CNN’s Black in America series, Education Contributor for CNN and MSNBC, an Essence Magazine columnist, and host of the #1 docudrama for TVONE , Save My Son. He shares his keys to success and calls to action in his latest best-selling book, Push Has Come To Shove: Getting Our Kids The Education They Deserve, Even If It Means Picking A Fight.
