Vote Tatum for Congress on May 29, 2012


“Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.” Philippians 2:4
The Rev. Kyev Tatum, Sr., a minister, civil rights activist, former collegiate athlete and university administrator is on a mission to change the world for the better. Born and reared in abject poverty, Rev. Tatum knows first-hand it takes a village to rear a child.

By focusing on advocacy, academy, and access, Rev. Tatum has built a reputation of “getting things done” at every level of public affairs and community service. He is the president and CEO of Urban Public, a consulting firm that focuses on urban education, public policy and community development issues. He has promoted the causes of civil rights, human rights and development in traditionally disadvantaged and underserved communities for over 20 years.

He coined the phrase, the “Communiversity of Hope Approach,” meaning when you connect the heart of the Church, with the heads at the University, to the hands within the Community, you create hope in the future, which empowers people in the present.

A native Fort Worthian, Rev. Tatum also heads the Fort Worth-Tarrant County chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), a civil rights group founded by the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., founding member of the Black, Brown, and Tan Caucus, a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., and currently serves on the Texas Interagency advisory council for the Center to Eliminate Disproportionality and Disparities at the Texas Health and Human Service Commission.

In 2006 and 2010, Rev. Tatum was honored by the Fort Worth Weekly with their Servant of the People award.

A graduate of Green B. Trimble Tech High School in Fort Worth, Texas and the College of Public Affairs and Community Service at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas, Reverend Tatum and his wife Tonya are proud members of the Harmony Missionary Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas.
