A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Singleton moved to Dallas, Texas at age 10, where he developed an early interest in politics. His educational journey began at Morehouse College, the only all-male Black college in the U.S., where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science.

His career in politics includes working on the presidential campaigns for Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, and Dr. Ben Carson. Singleton has also served as a consultant for high-profile clients and political candidates, including those running for Congress (House/Senate) state, and local offices across the country.

He is known for his public speaking engagements and has been featured on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, Politico, The New York Times, The Washington Post, BuzzFeed, The Huffington Post, BET, and C-SPAN, among others.

Singleton was one of the ten African-American individuals appointed to Senior Executive Service (SES) political positions and is the youngest appointed to an SES role in the history of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, where he served as the youngest deputy chief of staff in the agency’s history.

In 2019 he co-hosted Consider It, a digital show that focused on culture and politics by Facebook (Meta) and Vox Media. He also co-created and hosted Screen Share on MSNBC Peacock, under the special projects division for MSNBC in 2022, leading up to the midterms. He’s guest-hosted numerous shows, including for former MSNBC peacock host Zerlina Maxwell, and live shows for MSNBC anchor Katie Phang.

Current Events

The number of Americans who are aware and becoming political engaged is on the rise. As current events becomes apart of our daily conversation, understanding the importance of these issues and their impact has become increasingly important.

Politics and Culture

As the political and cultural climate changes, Shermichael's objective and methodical commentary, explores how the two are connected and impact our lives. By identifying key issues, social/cultural change and trends, Shermichael spotlights the work that must be done to sustain a political and cultural system that embraces rationality over emotions, while still being empathetic to change in our society.

Race in the 21st century

Despite electing the first African-American president of the United States, we find ourselves more polarized and divided than we ever imagined. As the need to come together as a nation becomes more and more important, Shermichael’s unique perspective emphasizes our shared commonalities and the importance that we look beyond race to focus on the things that unite us.

Conservatism and minorities

Conservatism finds itself in an interesting place, fighting to hold on to the values that define us as a society, while attempting to find its relevance in a ever changing society. With a shrinking base and an inability to compete politically with minority voters, the need for outreach continues to become more and more important. Minorities share many of the core values of conservatism, but despite this fact, many minorities don’t vote for republican candidates. Shermichael explores the reasons for this trend and what republicans can do to change it.
