Ken White is an emerging voice on the scene of African American Christian Conservatives, bringing with him a unique perspective, being born on the south side of Chicago in a democrat household yet by voting age would become a Republican. Ken WHITE’S family and childhood friends will tell you, “There was always something different about Kenny” in Junior High and High school He was a member of (GCAP) Greater Chicago Area Program for Gifted children, where amid the sound of sirens and gun fire, you would find Ken WHITE at the local library where after school he would spend hours among the things he loved: books, cool air, peace and quiet. After protecting himself from the attack of a Chicago Gang member, he would become the target of Gang Recruitment, where refusing to join he would suffer a life-threatening beating. Due to demonstrating courage during this time, the gangs afforded him his “Walk.” Knowing that even with this newly awarded “Street Cred” it would still be only a matter of time before another brush with death could come, Ken WHITE enlisted in the USAF, where he could escape the violence of Chicago while pursuing Higher education. Starting a family at a young age his higher learning pursuit was no longer the priority, Ken WHITE has always loved learning so to ensure his expansion of knowledge he would become what he calls an Autodidact.
