"She hit it out of the ballpark. Our employees were really moved and, I believe she inspired many to get more engaged and specifically to name racism for what it is. She was so real, so professional and really connected with the audience. After her talk and the Q & A, she graciously listened to several folks who just wanted a minute or two with her…lots of selfies, etc. People were really moved. She is remarkable."
"FANTASTIC! Over 1,400 people attended the community event the evening before, and over 500 the luncheon. Ms. Fulton was authentic, sincere, passionate and appropriate for the two different audiences. Not a dry eye either evening. We could not have been happier with her gift to this community!!"
"Thank you so much for the Sybrina Fulton event that was held recently at UConn. It was quite a sensational event by all standards. The Student Union Ballroom was filled to capacity and the overflow rooms with live streaming were also filled. Sybrina was amazing. She was quite charming, personable and engaging. Her talk was extraordinary! She had the audience in the palm of her hand. The reception that followed was wonderful. We had long lines of people who almost all wanted a photo with her and she was so patient and so sweet. All in all, Ms. Fulton was quite a big hit! She made our 45th Anniversary an event to remember."
"Our campus was incredibly blessed to welcome Ms. Fulton. She was quite humbling and the epitome of incredible grace and strength. Everyone, from students to faculty members and executive administrators, was quite impressed. Thanks again for your continuing partnership with our office."
