Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”

6. Egwuekwe: ‘Expand Your Networks’ -

As a kid growing up in Memphis, Meka Egwuekwe remembers his first computer clearly: It was from Texas Instruments, the kind Bill Cosby was selling on TV. He played games for six months, then, bored, he pulled out the instruction book and began learning to program in a language called BASIC.

14. On the Line of Scrimmage, Color Doesn’t Matter -

19. A Struggle All Leaders Face -

The heavyweight champion Joe Louis said, “Everybody wants to get to heaven, but nobody wants to die to get there.” It’s true.
