Thomas candidly shares his own personal journey and understanding of complex social epidemics such as homelessness, youth incarceration, abuse and neglect, as well as his life-changing decisions to use his talents to share the stories of real people facing seemingly insurmountable odds.
Morgan’s films and words have garnered the support of Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon and director Morgan Spurlock, both of whom have participated in his films.
Morgan shares excerpts taken from his films when he speaks with audiences in the United States and across the globe. He was the keynote speaker twice on Capitol Hill before the U.S. Congressional Homelessness Caucus and the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty. He also spoke for the PPL forum at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
In the documentary short film, Waiting for Mamu, Morgan speaks to the power of one, through the story of Pushpa Basnet, who at age 21 began helping free children from behind the bars of prisons in Nepal.
In These Storied Streets, Morgan captures the painful reality of homelessness in America and gracefully unearths pain and personal triumphs as well as the work of individual volunteers, advocates, and organizations that work daily to impact individuals experiencing homelessness.
In addition to social cause speaking, Morgan also delivers an important message to audiences about the power we all have to make change. He talks about the crazy voice inside each one of us to do something big, and that we need to listen to that voice and encourage each other to think big.
Morgan has been a guest writer for POV magazine in the UK and various other publications in the United States. He resides in Charlotte, NC, graduated from Central Michigan University, and most importantly is the father of four: Kylie, 12, Bryan, 11, Drew, 6 and Drake 1.
