Joset Wright-Lacy, President of NMSDC, phoned in to explain the importance of having minority owned businesses in our backyard.
It is with great sadness that NMSDC announces the death of Mr.Charles Brooks Perry, 83, a business leader, insurance industry pioneer, and long-time civic and political activist, passed away after a year-long battle with cancer May 20. He was co-founder of Pinkney-Perry Insurance Agency, the largest and oldest minority-owned insurance company in Ohio.
We are all Americans, whether we were here first, or came here fleeing religious or ethnic persecution, or seeking economic opportunity, or were brought here on the slave ships. Out of many peoples, from every land in the world, we continue to forge one nation, indivisible. We reject divisiveness, hate mongering and negativity toward others among us who do their best to pursue the very same American dream. “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” are not “certain unalienable rights” accorded only to some and not to all. Each of us is possessed of these rights and continues the struggle to achieve their benefit.
