Keith Boykin is the editor of the Daily Voice online news site, a frequent television commentator and a New York Times bestselling author of three books. But Boykin's broad and wide-ranging career has taken him from academia to politics, publishing, journalism, filmmaking and the business world.
Educated at Dartmouth and Harvard, Boykin attended law school with President Barack Obama and served in the White House as a special assistant to President Bill Clinton.
A veteran of six political campaigns, including two presidential campaigns, Boykin was named one of the top instructors when he taught political science at American University in Washington, D.C.
He has traveled to 48 of the 50 U.S. states and across four continents. He was also appointed by President Clinton to serve alongside Coretta Scott King and Rev. Jesse Jackson on the 1997 U.S. presidential trade delegation to Africa.
In 2007, Boykin was an associate producer of the feature film "Dirty Laundry," and he is currently working on his fourth book. Born and raised in St. Louis, Miss., Boykin now lives in New York City.
