About David Miller

Baltimore native David Miller is founder of the Dare to Be King Project, a unique initiative challenging contemporary narratives about Black manhood and masculinity. He received acclaim for Dare to Be King: What If the Prince Lives. A Survival Workbook for African American Males, a thought provoking, 52-week curriculum teaching adolescent males how to survive and thrive in toxic environments.

In 2015, Miller collaborated with the SALT Project on a short video titled Get Home Safely (10 Rules of Survival if stopped by the Police). The groundbreaking video outlines steps for navigating police encounters, was nominated for an Emmy and has been featured by the BBC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS and hundreds of other media outlets.

Miller has a bachelor’s degree from The University of Baltimore and a master’s degree from Goucher College. The married father of three has written several children’s books, including Khalil’s Way, The Green Family Farm and Gabe & His Green Thumb (English and Spanish versions). He also created a coloring book, They Look like Me, and authored Lessons I Learned from My Father, a collection of essays and quotes celebrating Black fathers in America.

Much of Miller’s work across the country also focuses on capacity building and sustainability among grassroots organizations that have often been ignored by traditional funding mechanisms. Using a social entrepreneurial lens, Miller helps organizations create unique funding portfolios among small to medium sized non-profits.

Miller frequently leads intergenerational conversations with boys and men focused on mental health, managing anger, decision making, healthy relationships and alternatives to violence.
