"As a featured speaker at our major annual event, Dr. Adams addressed
more than six hundred elected officials and activists, including four
governors. Her presentation on the life of Fannie Lou Hamer set the tone
for the event, our first year to recognize the contributions of Mrs.
Hamer by adding her name to the title of the Jefferson-Jackson-Hamer
Dinner. Dr. Adams both reminded Mrs. Hamer's contemporaries of her impact
and introduced this legendary figure to those who never met her with
a concise, informative and moving tribute. Kimberly truly made the evening
a salute to Fannie Lou Hamer."

Currently: President of Mississippi Policy Forum

and reaches out to her audience. We will invite her back to WCS again."

"I had the privilege of attending Dr. Adams' lectures on several
occasions: conferences in Salzburg, Chicago, and the lecture she delivered
to my students at the University in Rijeka. Dr Adams' approach to her
subject-matter showed a young woman whose speech could not leave anybody
indifferent. She spoke with assurance, candor, and passion not often
associated with academic settings. Her speeches are powerful, inspiring
and had an obvious positive impact on her audience."
