Basic Black Live: What is "Black Leadership?"

January 18, 2013

As we approach the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and President Obama’s second inauguration, Basic Black looks at the significance of leadership, and specifically the notion of "black leadership."  Questions on the table include:  Is black leadership a reality?  Is the idea of a black leadership outdated?  What should a contemporary black leadership look like?
