Fresh out of his last board of directors meeting as the 17th president of the NAACP, I caught up with my old friend Benjamin Todd Jealous from his home this morning.

We talked about his early years as an unlikely leader, the impact of his parents and grandparents, how his grandmother taught him that history is instruction, the power of committed professors, and how the NAACP presidency was the only job he ever wanted.
