Dr. Bertha Holliday astounded the Speaking With…(TM) listening community when she pointed out that the actions taken during the civil rights era lead to increased productivity and improved U.S. economy following the push to level the playing field. The addition of new ideas combined with the addition of the intellectual capital that the black race began to release in bigger ways paid off for the nation.

Hats off to the many organizations that acknowledge the moral and practical benefits of being inclusive and move in that direction. Thanks to Dr. Holliday for conveying this point and many others during her conversation with me. I’ll let you all know when she’ll join me again.

In the meantime, be sure to “visit” Alvin and Barbara Franklin and me this Friday at 2pm as we continue our discussion about the family. The talk is real and it’s constructive.
