Ellerman-PortraitDan Ellerman,
Baltimore, MD.

I was adopted from S. Korea at the age of 3 by a German/Irish couple. I grew up in a white household and neighborhood and went to predominantly African American schools in Baltimore city. The words I chose were told to me by my family and friends with the best intentions and I never knew how it affected me until adulthood. Now I think about race and Diversity every day, as a parent of mixed race kids and a Director of Diversity and Inclusion in a major corporation.
