S2 - August-September: "Social Responsibility: Giving Back On and With Purpose" | Episode 42 - Guests: Booker T. Washington High School Foundation Officers

CommonSense Leadership Influencer Podcast

Welcome to another month of Influencer Podcasting.  This month, we showcase individuals and organizations, doing phenomenal work in their communities and for their neighbors.  Social responsibility is an ethical process in which individuals are accountable for fulfilling their civic duty, and the actions of an individual must benefit the whole of society. In this way, there must be a balance between economic growth and the welfare of society and the environment. Our theme for August - September, "Social Responsibility:  Giving Back On and With Purpose", offers the platform needed to share strategies, tactics and projects that are changing lives and communities.  Given the current atmosphere of social unrest, there are men, women and organizations that have found "pain points" and are addressing that need. This week's guests are Officers of the Booker T. Washington High School Foundation: President Emeritus/Founding President,  Doris Glymph Greene, President, Gloria Graham Boyd, Vice-President, Colonel Kimberly Greene (Ret), M. L. Kohn, Scholarships and Matthew & Francis Addison, Alumni Co-Chairs.  These remarkable individuals share the mission, vision and strategies to maintain the legacy of the second high school built for Black students in the State of South Carolina, in 1916, Booker T. Washington High School.  At the advent of integration, BTW High School later was deemed obsolete and eventually closed.  The Columbia School Board sold the property to the University of South Carolina, leaving the Black community without its anchor institution.   Listen to the proud history of BTW High School, the memories and life lessons that catapulted successful alumni to lives of service and giving back.  Hear how the BTW High School Foundation is keeping the legacy of that great institution alive and thriving. This Foundation is a testament to the dedication of a group of retirees and their legacies, to keep the history and importance of Booker T. Washington High School relevant.   Members of the Foundation's passion is contagious and inspiring.  Hopefully, you're inspired to "Give Back: On and With Purpose" in your community!

Booker T. Washington Catches the Late Train

America's Forgotten Heroes

Born into slavery on a Virginia plantation, Booker T. Washington’s relentless pursuit of an education would eventually bring him such renown that he would become the first Black American ever invited to a private dinner at the White House. Surrounded by bigotry, his advancement looked by what seemed overwhelming obstacles at every turn, his superhuman discipline, relentless persistence and willingness to work not only earned himself a first-rate education; his attitude had been so impressive, and his achievements so notable, that he was offered the position of Director of the Tuskegee Institute, the first source of higher education for blacks in the deep south. He arrived at Tuskegee to discover that there was no Tuskegee Institute: no buildings, no property and no staff. Through sheer force of character, he found a way to to raise a magnificent brick structure on the ground of a formerly abandoned plantation, and would start a partnership that would eventually be responsible for over five thousand individual school buildings for black students all across the South. His message of hard work, self-reliance, good will and personal discipline won him the respect, admiration and assistance of the same Southern Whites that had once owned him as property, and his example of self-respect and friendly cooperation is one we could use very much today.
