Our guest is Dr. Ivory A. Toldson, an associate professor at Howard University, senior research analyst for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, and editor-in-chief of "The Journal of Negro Education." Dubbed a leader "who could conceivably navigate the path to a White House" by the Washington Post, "a modern day Harlem Renaissance writer" by the New African Journal, and "Young Researcher of the Year" by Southern University, Dr. Toldson, according to Howard University's Quest Magazine, is "a much sought-after lecturer and researcher on a number of serious sociological and psychological issues that have implications for African Americans."
In his latest piece written on The Root.com entitled "How Florida's Racist Past Helped Kill Trayvon", Dr. Toldson makes a connection to the state's black history to provide clues to why George Zimmerman confronted the unarmed teen.
