Hart Cunningham is a leader with a vision to bring truth to the term "united" in the United States of America. Having worked his way up through diligence and dedication to become a successful businessman, philanthropist, and entrepreneur, Cunningham learned the valuable lesson that no dream can be actualized without the contributions of others who are in a position to lift you up and advocate for your innovation. With key insights, Cunningham strives to be the leader who advocates on behalf of our nation’s many people who are currently suffering, oppressed and undereducated-and will thereby run the country with logic, transparency, and compassion.
Hart Cunningham was born in Memphis, Tennessee, to a loving family that enjoyed the outdoors, hard work and weekly services at Idlewild Presbyterian Church. His father, a writer and artist, marched with sanitation workers in Memphis alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. at the outset of the Poor People’s Campaign, helping to advance rights for all people of color.
