“Did the Greatest Generation pass the Baton after the Civil Rights Movement or did the Baby Boomers Drop it?” February is our nation’s celebration of Black History. It is a time to celebrate a people that helped build this great country. There have been many challenges and successes but arguably as a people, African Americans still are not where they should be. For the last couple of weeks we have discussed, “What do African American’s want.” Today we want to explore why African Americans aren’t further along and possibly where the missteps began. Today’s topic is; “Did the Greatest Generation pass the Baton after the Civil Rights Movement or did the Baby Boomers Drop it?” “Did the Greatest Generation pass the Baton after the Civil Rights Movement or did the Baby Boomers Drop it?” One of the signs of a successful business is that they have a vision for the future, a succession plan and an exit strategy. The vision is transposed onto paper into a business plan. This acts as a guide on how to run the business. Within the business plan it will have many things. Some of the most important is how to development team members for added responsibility, leadership and who will take the owners/bosses place. For the Civil Rights movement we had the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., but since then the movement has been for the most part leaderless and stumbling in the wilderness for the last 42 years. The Greatest Generation led the Civil Rights Movement to many landmark achievements as the first Baby Boomers were coming into adulthood. Did the Greatest Generation forget to, ‘train up the child in the way in which it should go?’ Did the boomers reach for the baton, drop it or did the Greatest Generation just keep on running with it and still running?
