Unlearning with Tamara S Hamilton

On Unlearning…

“What do we need to unlearn– about people, about reconciliation, about what we think we know for sure? Unlearning is a pilgrimage into our own inner landscape to see where we might need to prune our assumptions and clear a less treacherous path through this complex time. What might we unlearn in community, in communication and in solidarity with others? This idea is very fluid, but also holds the potential to shift mindsets and to open new vistas.” – Tamara Hamilton

Tamara Smiley Hamilton MA, is a professional speaker dedicated to giving voice to the voiceless. She is the CEO of Audacious Coaching LLC and facilitates workplace conversations on conflict, race and implicit bias.

Tamara has taught courses in race relations at Loyola Marymount University and served as assistant dean of students at Occidental College. From 1985-91, she lived with her family in the Rhineland Phalz region of Germany to experience life as an immigrant. That experience helped shape her as a citizen of the world, a dream her father espoused since the day she was born in segregated Montgomery, Alabama.

A lifelong learner, she is a graduate of Scripps College, Howard University and the University of Southern California. In 2017, she returned to higher education to study race, conflict and peace at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University. She is the 2017 recipient of the James H. Laue Scholarship Endowment in recognition of her contributions to human and civil rights.

Her coming of age story, Diary of a Watts Princess: A Memoir of Hopes and Dreams, is published in Kosmos Journal. And her recent podcast with Valerie Brown is linked below.
