    S4 Ep. 102: Black Faces In White Places: Black Excellence Despite Exhausting White Environments With Season 4 Apprentice Champion Dr. Randal Pinkett And Dr. Jeffrey Robinson

    S4 Ep. 102: Black Faces In White Places: Black Excellence Despite Exhausting White Environments With Season 4 Apprentice Champion Dr. Randal Pinkett And Dr. Jeffrey Robinson

    If the name Randal Pinkett sounds familiar, it may be because Pinkett was the first African-American winner on The Apprentice. When he won, this black man also became the only contestant to be asked to share his victory-with a white woman. The request (and Pinkett's subsequent refusal) set off a firestorm of controversy that inevitably focused on the issue of race in the American workplace and in society. Dr. Gee discusses the book "Black Faces In White Places" with the authors, Dr. Randal Pinkett And Dr. Jeffrey Robinson.
    Randal D. Pinkett is a Rhodes Scholar and Walter Byers Scholar, and is the founder and managing partner of the consulting firm BCT Partners. Jeffrey A. Robinson, Ph.D. is an award-winning business school professor, international speaker, and entrepreneur.

Thank you!

I don’t know how to say it any other way: thank you. I am white, I am female, I am a pastor, I am a mother of white children, and I am trying to navigate my place in this world, my complicity in this system, and the ways I am called to lead a white congregation in this season and in every season to come. Thank you. I’m really grateful.
