Evelyn Braxton
Star of "Braxton Family Values" Keynote Address Saturday at 1:00
Evelyn Braxton, Star of the Hit WE TV series “Braxton Family Values”, Entrepreneur, Opera Singer and Philanthropist,  experienced a life-change when at 13 she moved to Maryland alone to live with her aunt. This is where she met Michael Braxton and married him at the age of eighteen and gave birth to her first daughter, Toni, after only one year of marriage.

Following their firstborn, Evelyn had four more daughters, as well as a son, Michael. Evelyn came into her own as a full-time mother, a pastor and the children’s singing coach. She took great pride in her talented children; every Sunday she and the children would sing in the “family” church choir. Not knowing that her daughters would take their singing careers to the next level, she was suddenly thrown into “Momager” for her very young daughters.

After her daughters became “of age” Evelyn decided she’d spent enough time on tour and decided to take some time for herself. Evelyn attended University where she studied Social Science and Psychology and ultimately used her expertise to provide life coaching services for others, including work at Sarah’s House of Distressed Women and Family Shelter. Due to personal struggles that Evelyn had overcome, she embarked on a new passion of life coaching and started her organization, a self-empowering mentorship that helps encourage, motivate and support other men and women who have been through personal trauma.

Nancy Grace
A&E's "Grace vs. Abrams" Keynote Address Sunday at 12:30
An outspoken, tireless advocate for victims’ rights and one of television's most respected legal analysts, Nancy Grace is the powerful force behind A&E’s hit “Grace vs. Abrams”.

A former prosecutor with an unparalleled record of success, Nancy Grace has appeared on every television network, dispensing her firebrand take on the modern justice system. Nancy Grace was named one of the most impactful and powerful women in entertainment by both leading industry trade magazines, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter.

Grace’s first book, Objection!, became an instant New York Times bestseller and her two subsequent novels, The Eleventh Victim and Death on the D-List, were also New York Times bestsellers, and a television movie adaptation of The Eleventh Victim premiered on Lifetime.

She is the recipient of several American Women in Radio & Television “Gracie Awards” for her Nancy Grace Investigates primetime report on Court TV and has been awarded the "Individual Achievement/Best Program Host" honor.
Grace has also been widely recognized by many notable organizations for her advocacy work on behalf of victims’ rights.

Grace’s life changed forever in 1979 when her fiancé was shot and killed. In the aftermath of that crime, Nancy abandoned plans to become an English professor and turned her focus to criminal justice. She became a Law Review graduate and received her degree in constitutional and criminal law.  Additionally, she donated her time to help staff the hotline at an Atlanta battered women's center for over 10 years.

Nancy Grace initially came to television from the Atlanta Fulton County District Attorney's Office, where she served more than a decade as a special prosecutor of felony cases involving murder, rape, child molestation and arson.
Known for her authentic sensibility and for not holding back her opinion on high-profile cases, she was tapped to co- host Court TV’s Cochran and Grace and, later, the live daily trial coverage program, Closing Arguments.  She also presided over the daytime hit Swift Justice with Nancy Grace, for which she received an Emmy Award nomination.

Now, everything important in Grace’s life – including her unwavering crusade for true justice – comes back to family.
Since her marriage and the birth of her children, Nancy says, “I feel even more passionate about fighting for victims.”
