One of the amazing convention speakers was Renee Poussaint who with Camille Cosby founded the National Visionary Leadership Project (at www.visionaryproject.com) which interviews prominent African American leaders. Absolutely fascinating web-site both for the content and how it is done. Learning that today's students are not interested in the written word, she developed a means of linking older community members with youth. Interviews can be brought up and viewed in 45 second units, transcripts read, or research links explored. In addition Ms. P. is a speaker worth studying in her own right--a really brilliant speakers.
