Suite Talk: Interview with Acacia Bamberg Salatti, Part 1 – Family, Faith, Leading, Following Living and Dying

Acacia Bamberg Salatti

We recently sat down with Acacia Bamberg Salatti, the author of “A Leading Actor Learns to Love the Supporting Role,” for a deeper dive into the myriad issues explored in her piece.

In 2009, she was appointed by the White House to the Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in 2009, serving throughout the Obama Administration.

She served as the Director and her portfolio included engagement on minority health outreach and health disparities reduction strategies.

She holds a Masters in Divinity and a certificate in Black Church Studies from Candler School of Theology at Emory University. She is also a former Adjunct Professor of Religion at Columbia College, her alma mater.

We will hear more from Acacia in the future, but for now lean in, lean back and enjoy!
