(3) Maurice Dorsey, Ph.D.
Author Maurice Dorsey, Ph.D., joins the show during the third hour to discuss his newly-released book, Businessman First: Remembering Henry G. Parks Junior 1916-1989.
Henry G. Parks, Jr. Do you recognize the name? Anyone who grew up on the East Coast would probably recognize his slogan…”More Parks Sausages, Mom, Please!”
More than his ad, Henry G. Parks, Jr. was a man before his time. A pioneer in the American free enterprise system, Parks embarked on a journey leading to a multi-million dollar industry. After many endeavors in business, Parks Sausage became a reality in 1951. With strong aggressive leadership, brilliant marketing, and advertising, Henry G. Parks, Jr. built a business that never posted a losing year under his ownership. Park’s Sausage was the first African-American owned business to issue stock publicly, and Henry G. Parks, Jr. was once one of the wealthiest African-Americans in the country. His success caught the attention of some of the leading corporate boards in this country along with national organizations, city, state, and federal leaders. They sought to bring him aboard to share his knowledge, leadership skills, and ability with other leading American business, government, and non-profit leaders.
Maurice Dorsey will discuss such topics as
- How an African-American rose to the top, bucking the odds.
- How one man persevered through the racism in the Civil Rights era.
- Tips for would-be entrepreneurs.
- What we can learn from Parks’ life.
- How a catchy business slogan changed America’s eating habits.
