Neftalie Williams: Professor, Researcher, & Skateboard Diplomat

Skateboard Diplomacy: What You Can Do For Your Country 

Mr. Neftalie Williams discussed how his love of skateboarding culture manifested into a call to action to develop the concept of ‘skateboard diplomacy’ - a way to engage skateboarding, academia, and cultural institutions globally. Williams guides others to develop their own unique vision and reframe their passions to help create positive dialogues and communication between global publics.  Williams’ message is a reminder that everyday actions of individuals can exemplify the spirit of public diplomacy and spark dialogue between communities at home and abroad in a way that supports the best of American ideals.
