It was my pleasure to join my Spelman sister on her radio program, the Celeste Stein Show (June 6, 2020). We talked about what may a paradigm shift in racism in America and our views about racism. This event was recorded a few days after the tragic death of George Floyd, the African American man whose death at the hands of police has sparked global protests for justice and equality.
In the discussion, I was proud to join my long-time colleague, Dr. Pamela McAllister Johnson, who became the first African American woman to become a publisher at a mainstream daily newspaper (The Ithaca Journal, 1992). She is now a professor at Western Kentucky University.
The other guest on the show was Dr. Matthew Knowles, the renowned music executive, businessman and record producer who is known as the manager of Destiny’s Child and also the solo careers of his daughters Beyonce and Solange. He has had a distinguished career as a professor and lecturer, including at Texas Southern, Prairie View A&M, Cornell, Fisk and Rice universities.
