Morning Edition Wednesday, June 26: The Uncommon Male Mentoring Program
In this final of three interviews on the status of race relations in the United States in 2013, you'll meet Dr. Johnny Smith, Dean of Learning Support and Retention here at Isothermal Community College.
I chose Dr. Smith to interview for this series because he is the perfect example of what can be accomplished by men of color when given a reason to succeed against seemingly impossible odds.
He has been there himself; as he told me, he would not have made it without a mentor who believed in him and gave him a reason to want to succeed. And, by the way, his mentor was a female and she was white.
Please don't miss this final in the series of interviews on race relations in the 21st Century in the United States.
