Michael Moore was born in Flint, Michigan, and attended Catholic schools, including a year in the seminary, which he says accounts for his healthy respect for the fires of hell that he believes to be located somewhere just outside Crawford, Texas. He was an Eagle Scout, Newspaper Boy of the Week, and, at 18, the youngest person ever elected to public office in the state of Michigan.
His lecture presentation was a home run! It was real, passionate, and dead-on. It was also funny, informative, and at times shocking! It had vital slap-in-the-face, get-your-act-together messaging – so necessary as we confront the “death of hope” times we now live in.”- State University of New York, Buffalo
