Monday January 16, 2012 a very important person in United States civil rights history was celebrated. That person was Martin Luther King Jr. and he was celebrated at SPASH with a very interesting presentation. The main speaker of this presentation was Patrick Sims, who is a professor at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Dr. Patrick Sims was telling the story of James Cameron, a civil rights activist. The story in which he was portrayed is called 10 Perfect: A Lynching Survivor’s Story. The story itself is very interesting and was made even more interesting by Dr. Patrick Sims.
Since Dr. Patrick Sims is a professor at the University of Wisconsin Madison, he uses his public speaking skills daily. So its no wonder that he was a very good public speaker. The more you use your public speaking skills the better you will get at public speaking. It was easy to tell that Dr. Patrick Sims is a very good public speaker. Just by stating that he is a professor at the University of Wisconsin Madison established his credibility as a public speaker. It was very difficult to find something that Dr. Sims needed to work on as a public speaker. I guess the one thing he could improve on would be the volume of the presentation. The things that Dr. Sims did well definitely outweighed the things that need improvement. Patrick Sims is a great public speaker and a lot can be learned from watching him give a presentation. The presentation he presented was very fitting for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
