The National Visionary Leadership Project

In 2001 the National Visionary Leadership Project began. It is a collection of recorded video interviews with dozens of African-American pioneers in politics, the arts, business and academia.  Listen to Jazz Bassist William Betts talk about his first gigs, and Judge Robert Lee Carter describe his days as lead attorney in Brown V Board of Education.  The thoughts and words of more familiar celebrities like Maya Angelou, Della Reese, Faith Ringold, Charles Rangel, and Quincy Jones have also been preserved on this site.  NVLP is a valuable resource.  Check it out.
