“I HAD NO IDEA YOU WERE BLACK: NAVIGATING RACE ON THE ROAD TO LEADERSHIP”

During this time of intense national and political polarization, Ronald Crutcher’s life as a Black leader successfully bridging America’s cultural divides, offers a compelling story with important lessons for today’s thinkers. Born to parents who never graduated from high school, Crutcher grew up to become a leader at the highest levels of academia and the arts. As a child musician, he met with Coretta Scott King. As an adult educator, he sat at Maya Angelou’s holiday table. Crutcher’s success as a Black intellectual navigating highly charged social issues makes his story both unforgettable and compelling. Whether navigating cancel culture at the University of Richmond, where he served as president in the heart of the former Confederacy, or teaching Northeastern liberals the true meaning of functional diversity, Crutcher offers lessons on life and leadership that we cannot ignore.
