Khyla D. Craine

Welcome to my personal page. I am an attorney, writer, public speaker, and HBCU advocate. For almost 20 years, I have been a civil rights advocate--working to ensure fair and equal access to education, voting rights, and so much more.

While, I do not accept requests for private legal assistance, I do speak my mind about legal issues in our nation and around the globe.  Read more of my writings, or hear previous speeches.  If you would like more information or to invite me to speak at your event, please contact me.
