Biography

Stormey Coleman was born into the hard streets of Southside Chicago, Illinois to Zella M. Brown & Harold M. Coleman. Despite growing up in a loving and supportive family, rich in values Stormey encountered street life at a young age. He was routinely confronted with drug abuse, murder, and an unjust system that was crippling his community. Facing these challenges Stormeys family decided to move the family to Atlanta Georgia, home and birthplace of Martin Luther King Jr. Atlanta, known as the gateway to the south, a region deeply rooted in racial tension, prejudice and inequality presented new challenges. Despite the aforementioned obstacles Atlanta presented a culture, sense of community & strong spiritual presence unlike anywhere else.

After losing childhood friend Brandon Williams to senseless gun violence after a school basketball game Stormey learned the power of words, and the difference he could make. Stormey took a stance against the education system by boycotting class to speak to his peers in effort to minimise violence which resulted in 83% decrease in black on black youth crime.

His teacher and mentor Dr. Edward Johnson saw promise in the young Stormey Coleman and nurtured his leadership and orating abilities. Recognising Stormeys ability to identify with the issues facing young adults he tasked him with his first international experience. Stormey formed part of a youth organisation named B.T.A (Black Teens for Advancement International), where he would travel to Europe to speak troubled teens. The experience further cemented in Stormey’s mind that interacting with and helping people would be his lifes goal.
