Hands down, Reinette Jones brings the best people and projects into Special Collections. Meet Debra Faulk aka DD Rainbow, Comedy Empress. Reinette invited us to attend Debra’s rehearsal for her upcoming TEDx talk. Whenever it makes it online, you have to watch it. You will laugh and cry at the same time, and I say that just from the rehearsal. The final talk will be even better. There was a small group that lent our ears, hearts, and opinions to Debra, and I’m confident in saying that we all walked away feeling like we’d just been blessed by an extraordinary soul. Debra’s talk is called Praying For A Good Man. I don’t want to give away too much, so I’ll just say this: it’s not about what you think it’s about, and her story is so powerful that you will be captivated for the entire talk. It doesn’t hurt that she’s utterly hilarious in a way that connects her with an audience like few speakers can do. She’s done stand-up comedy for years, so her sense of timing and story telling propels this talk into the stratosphere. That in itself is interesting because the topic is not funny, and yet, you will laugh because it really is funny. Have I piqued your interest yet? Debra Faulk is smart. She’s gifted. She’s compassionate. She’s hilarious. She’s a beautiful person and I’m so thankful to have met her.
