Good People ought not be Strangers,” will take the audience on an incredible journey from the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta, to the Assembly Hall of the United Nations. He will also discuss his research on the little-known history of the rise and fall of Tulsa, Oklahoma’s black community known as Black Wall Street, where early seeds of entrepreneurship and innovation were sown.

Taulbert will close his talk with a story about an unexpected invitation to supper at Roselawn, an 18th century plantation in South Carolina. This event lead to a five-year journey for Taulbert, resulting in his book “The Invitation,” which is a clarion call for “good people to not be strangers.”
