Had the tremendous opportunity to spend an evening sharing some ideas on Black Heritage.  I want to thank Leonard Webb of Ethnic Online for asking me to participate in the program.  There was spoken word, an African American Heritage Showroom, a funky band and then there was me…

This type of event and venue always presents new challenges to public speaking, as you must share with a crowd that came to eat, dance, have a good time and talk about of rich heritage.  It becomes a greater challenge when you have to speak in between a band break at 9:40 p.m..

Having my Dad, John, Sr., in the audience made it so much better and I hope the ad-hoc audio recording plays well enough for you to get the message of what I hoped to accomplish.
