Baby Boomers and the Hip Hop Generation Unite! 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 few weeks we have discussed, “What do African American’s want.” Today we want to explore how African Americans can move further along as the Boomers unite with the Hip Hop Generation. Today’s topic is; “Baby Boomers and the Hip Hop Generation Unite!" “Baby Boomers and the Hip Hop Generation Unite!” One of the signs of a successful business is that it has a vision for the future, training, 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 develop 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. Now it is time for the Greatest Generation to step aside and for the Boomers to firmly move into the positions of power in the Black Community. It is also time to pass on their gained knowledge to the Hip Hop Generation. A big step forward will be a leadership summit this Saturday Feb 26, 2011 at noon hosted by Frank Hawkins President of the NAACP Las Vegas Chapter. There is no time like the present so let's Roll!
