A.K.B. COMMUNICATION is a creative arts, services and consulting company. From books–to theatrical plays–to feature films–to television pilots, (in all genres), Aaron Braxton has crafted a distinct voice that is passionate, humorous, thought provoking, entertaining, and gut wrenching.
Raised in the inner city and educated by some of the nation's top universities, he brings a unique perspective to a literary landscape inundated with emblematic urban stereotypes and ethno-cultural clichés. His ideology is deeply personal and his writing projects are rooted and characterized by a commitment to equitable, communal literacy, diversity and social issues. All while telling compelling, soul stirring stories with universal themes and strong characters that overcome obstacles, create paradigm shifts in perception and are endowed with varied, complex imagery and intricate, relevant, emotionally driven plots.
Featured on NBC news, Memphis Live at 9, NPR, The LA Times, The New York Post, The Memphis Commercial Appeal, LA Weekly and Backstage, AARON BRAXTON SPEAKS is the services and consulting subsidiary of A.K.B. COMMUNICATION. Within this component he offers innovative Solo Writing and Solo Performance Workshops and Consultations for all ages and abilities, using his book, GOING SOLO: How to Create a Dynamic One-Person Show, as a guide to personal transformation, artistic growth and creative empowerment.
Also a highly talented Motivational Speaker, he talks about his deeply personal, physically and mentally challenging life experiences and offers strategies for breaking down barriers, through hard work, perseverance, laser focus, and finding the greatness inside one's self. For young audiences, he also reads a chapter from his novel, JESSE and the CATERPILLAR WHO GOT ITS WINGS, engages in a Question and Answer session, then offers young people the opportunity to listen to their inner voice in order to feel what it is like to access their own POWER and personal GREATNESS.
