Amanpour: Darren Walker, Richard Parsons, Patrick Robinson and Robin DiAngelo

In 2020 black Americans are worse off than white Americans by every metric. The demand for economic equality has been a rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement and a critical gaze is now turning to corporate America, where only four CEOs of Fortune 500 companies are black, all of whom are men. Christiane Amanpour speaks to two men who have lived this reality, Darren Walker, President of the Ford Foundation, and Richard Parsons, former Chairman and CEO of Time Warner. Then, as Britain continues to address its colonial past, an aptly timed BBC drama “Sitting in Limbo”, has been released. It tells the story of the 2017 Windrush scandal, when a generation of British subjects from the Caribbean were wrongly detained or deported as part of the British government’s ‘hostile environment policy’. Star of the drama Patrick Robinson gives his perspective on the present moment, and the work that Britain still needs to do. And then, in 2018 Michel Martin spoke to author Robin DiAngelo about her book “White Fragility”. Finding even greater relevance today, the book is back on numerous best-seller lists and in an extended cut of the original interview, they discuss unconscious biases and why white people are often defensive when it comes to talking about race.

Magically Speaking with Richard Parsons - 002

The Speaking Club: Mastering the Art of Public Speaking
Episode artwork
Read more

In my opinion, if you’re a public speaker, you are also an entertainer… yes your primary purpose is likely to be to educate, inform, or inspire, but without being able to grab people’s attention, to keep them interested and stimulated, whatever message you have is likely to get lost. So, it stands to reason we could probably learn a lot from professional entertainers, which leads me to this week’s guest, Richard Parsons.

Richard is an award winning, professional close-up magician, pick pocket and full member of the magic circle. This is an action-packed episode, not only do we delve into the life of a magician, and get the curtain pulled back on some tricks of the trade, but we get some great speaking advice. Richard talks about managing nerves, tips for engaging people, Coué's Law and the power of auto-suggestion, how he gets bookings, and lots, lots more more.

Thanks for listening!

Richard Parsons, a former Chariman of Citigroup and former CEO of AOL Time Warner

FORTUNE Unfiltered with Aaron Task
Episode artwork
Read more
A former Chairman of Citigroup and former CEO of AOL Time Warner, Dick Parsons has tackled some of the toughest jobs of any American corporate executive in the past 25 years. In this episode of Fortune Unfiltered, Parsons explains why he’s always the person who gets called after disaster strikes. “I’m attracted to that – it keeps your attention,” Parsons says of leading in a crisis. “ It concentrates the mind as Pat Moynihan used to say. If you’ve got serious issues you need to be alert [and] alive in the moment. I’m not the world’s best steady-state manager...not a particularly good one because my mind wanders.”

In addition to the AOL and Citigroup jobs, Parsons took over as interim CEO of the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers in May 2014 amid the Donald Sterling scandal.

But all those professional tribulations pale in comparison to the battle Parsons is fighting today. About two years ago he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a blood cancer for which there are a variety of treatments but currently no cure.

Parsons talks frankly about his battle with cancer, his management philosophy and his reflections on being one of the first African-Americans to run a Fortune 500 company.
