Baltimore native, David C. Miller, has received international acclaim for Dare to Be King: What If the Prince Lives. A Survival Workbook for African American Males, a thought-provoking, 52-week curriculum teaching adolescent males how to survive and thrive in toxic environments.
Armed with a Bachelor’s degree from The University of Baltimore and a Master’s degree from Goucher College, Miller frequently leads intergenerational conversations with men and boys focused on boyhood, fatherhood, parenting, mental health, managing anger, decision making, healthy relationships, and alternatives to violence. Miller has provided extensive training for juvenile justice, youth development, and mentoring organizations in the U.S. and abroad.
In 2015, Miller collaborated with the SALT Project on a short video titled Get Home Safely (10 Rules of Survival if Stopped by the Police). The groundbreaking video, outlining steps for navigating police encounters, was nominated for an Emmy and has been featured by the BBC, NPR, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, Huffington Post, and hundreds of other media outlets.
