2009. I take my stand, defend it on CNN, FOX, etc, buy Black ONLY, preach in tears re the sacrifice, the threats. See my family, the owners, the community, the pain, the hope.
My stand to buy Black ONLY for one year was as hurtful as it was historic. Saw, endured, learned so much. I left Corporate to fight for justice and equality. Now, I'm an acclaimed author and speaker fighting racism, driving entrepreneurship, and inspiring and teaching economic solidarity and business diversity.
