Brand New Ending
2022 Conference

In our inaugural 2022 conference, TEDxRutgersCamden took its theme inspiration from the quote “We can’t go back and make a brand new beginning, but we can start now and make a brand new ending.” Join us as we discover what it means to shift our trajectories as our speakers talk about the path we are currently taking and how to shift that path to create a Brand New Ending.

Police Brutality and the Less Conspicuous Ways Racism Kills | Oscar Holmes IV | TEDxRutgersCamden

In 2020, many reacted to the blatant crimes committed against Black Americans in the form of police brutality and pledged to support their fellow Black citizens in any way they could. Yet oftentimes, these horrific acts of violence and displays of racism are the tip of a very deep iceberg of unseen racism that creates a social climate in which it is easier for these acts to occur. Oscar Holmes IV illustrates the variety of subtle dangers Black Americans face and shows us how our understanding can contribute to collective healing. Oscar Holmes IV is the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Programs, an Associate Professor of Management, and the RUSE Director at Rutgers School of Business-Camden. Additionally, he is the founder and CEO of WHConsulting Firm LLC and creator and host of ‘Diversity Matters’ podcast. His research examines how leaders can maximize productivity and well-being through fostering more inclusive environments and has been published in several top-tier management journals and books. He earned a Ph.D. and M.A. in Management from The University of Alabama, M.L.A. from The University of Richmond, and a B.S. with honors from Virginia Commonwealth University. He is also an alumni of Stanford University's Graduate School of Business Summer Institute in General Management. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
