I recorded this Motivational Moment episode to honor Black History Month. As I was coming of age in the ‘60s, I saw changes in society that led me to believe our country was going to recognize our greatest strengths and embrace equality. Unfortunately there are now some troubling signs that we are moving backwards and ignoring the lessons we learned from the mistakes made in the past. We cannot ignore these efforts to make America unremarkable again. So this month, I ask you to stand up and speak out in the face of this growing evil in society. We must make a resounding clarion call for Americans to demand better and to live up to her highest ideals of LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
