Vince Everett Ellison was born on a cotton plantation in Haywood County, Tennessee. His parents at that time were sharecroppers. Through hard work and a belief in Jesus Christ, his parents pulled him and his seven siblings out of poverty. His family started the Ellison Family Gospel singing group, where Vince sang and played multiple instruments as a child and young adult. Vince worked for five years as a Correctional Officer at the Medium/Maximum Kirkland Correctional Institution in Columbia, South Carolina. Afterward, Vince worked in the nonprofit arena.

In 2000, Vince received the GOP nomination for the South Carolina 6th Congressional District. In 2019, Vince wrote The Iron Triangle: Inside the Liberal Democrat Plan to Use Race to Divide Christians and America in their Quest for Power and How We Can Defeat Them, and 25 Lies, which both became Amazon #1 bestsellers. Vince's upcoming book from Posthill/Simon & Schuster, Crime Inc., will be coming soon. He has appeared numerous times on Hannity, The Laura Ingraham Show, Newsmax, OAN, The Joe Pags Show, The Brian Kilmeade Show, The Howie Carr Show, and many other radio and television programs.

Vince is also the producer and writer of the upcoming documentary Will You Go To Hell For Me, scheduled for release on Feb. 24.

Vince is a member of Project 21 and has written numerous articles for American Greatness magazine, Bizpacreview.com, and other publications.

The lecture will begin at 7 p.m. on Feb. 26 in the Iowa Memorial Union’s North Room with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Ellison will have a Q&A feature following his lecture. We always invite individuals with differing viewpoints to take full advantage of this opportunity.
