H. Ronald Roseboro “Zion” is far from an entertainer. He impacts his listeners with challenging words of truth, hope, and healing. Zion is committed to use his gifts of spoken word, poetry, and artistic writing to liberate prisoners from chains of self- limitation, self-rejection, and underachievement.
Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina he is a graduate of West Charlotte Senior High School and is now within a few semesters of obtaining a Bachelors degree in Christian Ministry with a concentration in Pastoral Ministry at Lee University.
His art of spoken word transcends all barriers of race, class, gender, and socio-economics. He is a prolific speech and freelance writer. Ronald has penned many styles of speeches for both political leaders and religious leaders. He is also a noted author, syndicated columnist, and has had numerous news editorials published in The Charlotte Post Newspaper.
In addition to sharing his gifts of writing and motivational speaking, in May of 2010 Ronald was selected to help create and organize a vital coalition under the direction of Charlotte’s Mayor Anthony Foxx to address and eradicate over 50% of high school dropouts at West Charlotte High School. Ronald was one of the pillars to help spark the historical movement known as West Charlotte Mentoring Coalition (WCMC). Not only was Ronald fortunate to collaborate with other city councilmen and other religious and civic dignitaries, he created the name WCMC as well as the vision statement for the coalition, “THE STRENGTH OF A COMMUNITY IS FOUND IN THE PREPARATION OF ITS YOUTH.”
Ronald poetically known as Zion is no stranger to adversity and conflict. Setbacks are preludes to comebacks. His resilience and determination to declare victory in the face of defeat qualifies him to embrace his identity and fulfill his destiny.
He is committed to upholding the integrity of authorship and spoken word, which some have compromised for self-aggrandizement.
Recognized for his cutting edge messages and practical applications, his fervent passion is for the fragmented and forgotten. This weighty mantle is an uncompromising mandate to bring healing, freedom, and restoration to men and women by empowering them through education.
