Travels From: Georgia
Growing up poor in Wilmington, Delaware, Bertice was told by a high school teacher that she was "not college material." Bertice not only graduated magna cum laude from Jacksonville where she was awarded the President's Cup for leadership, she subsequently earned a Ph.D. in sociology from Kent State. Dr. Berry taught sociology and statistics at Kent and she became one of the most popular teachers at the university; so popular, in fact, larger lecture halls had to be found to accommodate the ever-increasing number of students. Dr. Berry left Kent to become an award-winning entertainer, lecturer, professor and comedienne. Bertice was the host and co-executive producer of her own nationally syndicated talk show, "The Bertice Berry Show." She is the best-selling author of I'm on My Way, But Your Foot Is on My Head, and the hilarious bestsellers Straight From the Ghetto and You Might Be Ghetto If. This remarkable woman brings light and a sense of spirit and purpose to her audiences.
