What Corporate America Still Misunderstands About Black People

Everyone wants to talk about race these days and thank heavens. Radio One is sponsoring an event at the One Club in New York titled – “Urban Legends: What Corporate America Still Misunderstands About Black People.” They don’t mince words. Panelists include Catherine L. Hughes, founder and chairperson of Radio One; Steve Stoute, founder and CEO of Translation; Najoh Tita-Reid, director of multi-cultural and African American marketing at Proctor & Gamble; and Julius Dunn, program director for The One Club’s Adversity Program. The event will be held on Tuesday, January 13, 2009 from 9:30 am – 11:00 am.

I tell you what – I might just go to see Steve Stoute. Remember that video we posted of him talking about Janet Jackson’s, Nipplegate? He’s got a dry humor that might be even better enjoyed live. Check out a much more staid version of Steve from his induction video into the AAF’s Hall Of Achievement.
