    in Business

    Ever wonder what’s it’s really like to be an entrepreneur, or even a social entrepreneur?  It’s one thing to dream about it.  It’s something very different to “live it outloud” every day as a full time profession.

    Remembering Our Stories On Flag Day w/Carole Copeland Thomas

    in Business

    For some, it's Flag Day, a day to remember the rich history of the American flag.

    For others, it's just another work day.

    For me, its a day like no other in my entire life.  It's the day my only son was killed in a single occupant car accident on June 14, 1997.

    This is Flag Day -- marking the date in 1777 when John Adams proposed the stars and stripes as the official flag of the United States.  Making flags, banners, and pennants is a nearly $5 billion annual business in the U.S.

    Today we'll listen to the Census Bureau's profile on the American Flag. Then we'll turn our spotlight on three remarkable  "slice of life" stories from  StoryCorp, the national organization archiving real stories about real people around the United States.  One story details the transference of anger, pain and suffering into good when a father is murdered.  Another story describes the personal partnership of a couple in the classroom. The third story is an unusual love story that transcends the stereotypes.

    And then I will share some special stories of my late son, his twin sister and his older sister, and how the bonds of family love and connection even transcend death.  

    This show is dedicated to the memory of my late son, Mickarl D. Thomas, Jr.

  • Civil Disobedience Is The American Way w/Bill Wells

    in Business

    Civil Disobedience Is The American Way: 

    Fighting Injustice with New Forms of Peaceful Protest

    From Trayvon Martin to Jordan Davis to Michael Brown to Eric Garner to DJ Henry. America has a problem.  A race and gender problem.   And sitting right in the bullseye are countless Black men, young and old victimized by police tactics that work against them in grand jury rulings and court house verdicts.  We can no longer look the other way…Americans are finally saying ENOUGH to the senseless killings that are happening throughout the land. 

    Important details missing from a dispatcher’s call to police resulted in a 12 year old child being gunned down by a rookie cop in Cleveland.  And a man with asthma desperately calling out “I can’t breathe” succumbed to a New York cop’s chokehold that finished his life forever.

    Veteran diversity professional and former chair of the National Black MBA Association Bill Wells will discuss the direction of our country as we wrestle with police brutality and its fatal impact on Black men everywhere.  And we’ll also look at the  groundswell of peaceful protests around the country and the world that are waking us all up the the changes needed to fix the injustices so badly derailing our nation.
