“Leadership Development and the cultivation of our next generation of leaders is a worthwhile investment.” - 100 Black Men of America, Inc.
Young people have often been at the forefront of social progress in America. During the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s, for instance, youth worked to desegregate schools, register black voters & protest against systemic oppression.
Today is no different. Young people across the country are improving media representation for people of color, promoting literacy education, speaking out against bullying, and much more.
In this episode of the Maximize Your Brand Podcast, I will be interviewing my friend and brother, Dr. Alex O. Ellis. Dr. Ellis and I will be discussing how leaders today can aid in building the next generation of leaders of tomorrow among Black Americans.
Dr. Alex Ellis is an award winning author, speaker, activist and connoisseur of style. He has been featured on CNN, Black Enterprise’s Our World Television Show, The 700 Club, BET and the Steve Harvey Morning Show.
Yielding to the call of social responsibility, Dr. Ellis is the founder of the Tied To Greatness Non-Profit Organization, which is positively impacting the lives of young men.
