Valda Boyd Ford, an accidental humorist and self-proclaimed “daughter of the South, brings a homespun, down to earth informality to her presentations, and uses a combination of self-effacement and “Can we talk?” attitude that swings from virtual stand-up comedy to lump-in-the-throat poignancy. From describing her first experience with a public toilet in a West African refugee camp to explaining how to defuse rage and resentment when the arrogance of professionals contributed to the death of her son, she mesmerizes her audiences.
