Check out this awesome Ted Talks from Mellody Hobson. Mellody Hobson is a business woman, serves as a board of directors for numerous firms, is a mom and is married to film maker George Lucas. With all of her accomplishments, in 2006 she couldn’t escape racism so she asks us to be color brave. Enjoy.

    I love her! She’s smart in everyway imaginable and has made some great choices in her career and her personal life.

        Actually Mellody Hobson is President of Ariel Investments, one of the largest AA-owned investment firms in the US. She services on numerous boards and is a Princeton grad.

        All was accomplished BEFORE she married George Lucas.

      Very proud of Mellody Hobson…she has chosen to put her happiness 1st, as oppose to color 1st.

      We, BW, could all take a page from her book.

      Wishing all Sistas lots ‘o love and happiness!

    I absolutely love Mellody Hobson-Lucas. She is such a brilliant woman and is a great role model for our young black girls today. I’m sharing this video with a couple of my younger, female relatives. 🙂

    I have a look of askance for anyone who is friends with that Sambo, anti-black coon Harold Ford Jr.
