Vincent Ellis White
Vincent Ellis White, a (South) Richmond, Virginia native, is a certified fatherhood facilitator, carries a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Mass Communications, a Master’s in Education, and an Executive Management Certificate in Business Management. With over 15 professional years under his belt, White has experience in many vast areas ranging from foster care, mentorship, media, TV/radio hosting, life skills coaching, small group facilitation, business, writing, and much more. In addition, White is also a longtime community activist, fatherhood advocate, motivational speaker, and current RCLI (Richmond Christian Leadership Initiative) class of RCLI 17’ member. He is the new podcast director and host of the M-Lifestyle online magazine’s national podcast: “M-Talk, the Millennial Show”
Not only locally, Mr. White has also become an inspiration to a rapidly growing national audience with a book and a traveling stage play entitled, “Finding Chris, My Father” which shares his personal life story that gives a very candid and emotionally compelling look at the issues of fatherhood, bullying, and domestic violence. His uniquely candid lectures and counseling seminars have generated similar quests among those who seek to heal open wounds and find their divine purpose. The stage play has been performed at numerous theaters and universities throughout Virginia. Vincent’s heartfelt story has been featured on CBS, NBC, ABC in New York, and lectured upon at various universities around the country. White has also enjoyed numerous acknowledgements such as Richmond Virginia’s Style Weekly magazine “Top 40 under 40” award-winning recipient for outstanding efforts in the city/community and Richmond Times Dispatch features. His two published books: “The Fully-Seasoned Man’s Relationship Recipe” and ‘Finding Chris, My Father’ have gained heavy traction and attention from all over the country, and has placed him in high demand as a keynote speaker.
As a proud father of a 10yr old son, most of his current excitement and latest anticipation comes from his first children’s book (in which his son Jordan is a co-contributor) entitled “Team Dynamo’s, Bully Justice” which is on schedule to be released in 2017. As an entrepreneur, his V.E.W (Voice-Empowerment-Worth) Enterprises allows him the means to sew all of his experiences/education together and continue his outstanding devotion to empowering young people and families, by raising awareness on the plights of fatherlessness and instilling a new hope in our communities. In his spare time he enjoys fellowshipping with his family, playing basketball, attending festivals, church, reading, parks, hanging with his friends, and simply helping others in any way possible. He knows that God has a divine purpose for his life, and believes that if he can persevere and become successful, anyone can.
