Join us for 'An Evening with Clifton Taulbert' to learn about "The Entrepreneurial Mindset". Taulbert will share insights gained from his journey as an entrepreneur that each of us can apply to our lives, no matter background or circumstances.

Clifton L. Taulbert is an international speaker, Pulitzer-Prize nominated author and entrepreneur. His first book Once Upon A Time When We Were Colored became a national bestseller, a major motion picture and a requested gift for Nelson Mandela upon his release from prison. Eight Habits of the Heart, another of Clifton Taulbert’s books, garnered him an invitation by former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor to address members of the court and their invited guests. Taulbert is the President and CEO of the Freemount Corporation (a human capital development company), President and CEO of Roots Java Coffee (an African-American owned national coffee brand), and an entrepreneurial mentor. Taulbert, born on the Mississippi Delta during the era of legal segregation, believes he could have failed had he not encountered community builders and entrepreneurial thinkers early on in his life.

This is a community event open to the public - free of charge - with dinner provided.
