Ted Adkisson is currently director and minister of cultural affairs with African-American History Academy, a group designed to educate, inform and motivate African‐American members and their families to build better relationships, apply hard work, and develop positive self‐images in the community through the teaching and study of African‐American history. The AAH Academy material is designed to rob the ignorance from African‐Americans who have been culturally deprived because of mental slavery. Mr. Adkisson retired from human resources in 1993 at the University of Illinois, after working there for 30 years. He has been a business owner of TeRoʹs and Associates, a mentor in the Community Collaboration for Economic Development and an independent film and media maker. He has also taught free computer classes at a number of area churches as well as the Douglass Annex. In 1996 he received an award for black business‐owners presented by Urban League of Champaign County, National Council of African‐American Men and the Champaign County Chamber of Commerce.

Ted was featured in Difference Makers 2010: An eBlack Champaign-Urbana Publication.
