002: BLACK WALL STREET - Clifton Taulbert, The Commodity of Personal Resolve & A Legacy of Resilience
Show Notes

Clifton L. Taulbert is an American businessman, entrepreneur and noted author (Pulitzer prize nominated as well as a film adaptation from his seminal work “Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored”). Mr. Taulbert was born on the Mississippi Delta during segregation, taking life lessons from the rural Southern community that would instruct his follow up book, “Eight Habits of the Heart: Embracing the Values that Build Strong Communities''. Mr. Taulbert, an internationally renowned speaker on these values, is now a highly sought after global business and community leader in Tulsa Oklahoma; a powerful symbol of the historic Black Wall Street - an epicenter of black wealth in the 1920s where Black Wall Street’s Greenwood Avenue featured luxury shops, restaurants, movie theaters, a library, and pool halls, before the terrorist attack of the Tulsa Race Massacre exactly 100 years ago. Black Wall Street’s and Clifton Taulbert’s mastery of resilience and perseverance are skill sets that every entrepreneur impresario must master en route to sweet success.

Today, he is the President/CEO of the Freemount Corporation (a human capital development company) serving clients nationally and internationally, and President/CEO of Roots Java Coffee, a national coffee brand, importing coffee from Africa.

“Being a good person is the best gift you can give your children, your cousins and your Aunt Minnie that you only see once a year.  Being principled, really speaks to your better self.” - Clifton L. Taulbert
