Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead book cover

I was honored to join a group of Richmonders that Marc Cheatham of The Cheats Movement assembled to discuss black history and leadership.  He asked some thought-provoking questions that I hope will spark a broader community dialogue and fuel greater collaboration and progress.  Check out the teaser below to see some of our non-answers.


In honor of Black History Month, please share your answers to one or more of his questions in the box below:

  • What is the significance of Black History in 2014?
  • What is the most critical lesson that needs to be taught to the next generation of black leaders?
  • When you think of exemplary examples of black leadership, is there a particular story or narrative that comes to mind?
  • What inspires you about the black community in 2014?
