Why hire Ted Williams III?
It is election season again. Are you ready?
American elections have vital consequences. Yet close to half of all Americans sit out of elections, and many more are confused and frustrated by the process. Join Professor and political talk-show host Ted Williams for a non-partisan and interactive workshop designed to educate voters for the upcoming election. In a time of both extreme division and political apathy, this workshop brings a sensible voice to a vital national conversation.
Ted Williams III teaches Political Science at Kennedy-King College and Chicago State University. He holds degrees in Public Policy Studies from the University of Chicago (M.P.P. '02), and Rutgers University (B.A. '98) and writes extensively on the topics of Religion and Politics, the Youth Vote, and African-American political engagement.

Williams has served as an expert guest providing political commentary for WGN-TV, WVON radio, Trumpet Magazine, the Illinois Family Institute, the US Observer and Capital Commentary. He is currently finishing a book project entitled Elevation: Religion, Politics, and the future of the African-American Community. Williams has hosted a series of forums on social justice and voter education and presently serves on the newly formed Chicago Public Schools' Far Southside Community Advisory Council. Williams served as a state-wide spokesman for school reform through School Choice Illinois, as well as a negotiator for the first successful union contract for part-time City Colleges faculty. Additionally, he advised the team that successfully lobbied for extending the age of healthcare insurance coverage for students in Illinois.
In addition to this, he has also had an extensive performing arts career which includes commercial and industrial work for McDonald's Corporation, Six Flags Great America, Federal Express, Astellas Pharmaceuticals, and Accenture.
