A Disturbance In The Force

“A Disturbance in the Force” is the title of Chapter 4 of my memoir “Making Gumbo in the University.” In that chapter I describe a ten-minute presentation I gave at the DOD World Wide Equal Opportunity Conference. The hook of the talk is that I gave it using a Star-Wars Theme. “There is a great disturbance in the force,” is the first line. Unorthodox as it was, at the end the mostly military audience went wild. Here is the video of that talk.
