SUPPORTING BLACK RESPONSIBLE LEADERSHIP IN THE CITY
Today, approximately one-third of the largest 100 cities in America have Black mayors. In the city of Milwaukee, WI, Black leadership has a “sextuplet” with Black men filling the most powerful positions in the city, including Mayor’s Office, Sheriff Department, County Executive, Chief of Police, Superintendent of Public Schools, and City Attorney. In the past, when Black people gained access to leadership positions in our major metropolitan areas, the tax base and infrastructure are suffering. For various reasons, white-flight usually occurred. Now is the time to redefine what’s possible when Black people are entrusted with governance. The focus of our broadcast is to acknowledge problems and create solutions for the future.
Life is a conversation, and any problem in life can be resolved within the context of a conversation. We need speaking and listening to have the power to create solutions.
Our guest is Milwaukee City Attorney Tearman Spenser. The host and co-producer is Brother Kwojo Charles L Robinson Sr
