WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
Jay’s unique personality can make children and adults, laugh and learn in the same program. Exceptional!
PHIL CARD – ACTOR, WRITER, PRODUCER, WALT DISNEY PRODUCTIONS - ORLANDO, FLORIDA
I like Jay’s style. He says that kids are like cars; they show up at the program with their windows up. He gets them laughing their heads off! Humor rolls the windows down.

I was amazed at Dr. Banks’ insight and humor as well as his ability to reach diverse audiences. His wit is a joy to experience and to learn from. He asks profound questions pertaining to the topics being covered. He shares his heritage as well as involving his audiences in the program. All of these activities testify to Dr. Banks’ value of learning and ability to communicate.
