In this episode I interview Lin Hart author of the book “Reginald F. Lewis Before TLC Beatrice….The Young Man Before The Billion-Dollar Empire”. Lin wrote this book focusing on a specific 10-year period of Reginald F. Lewis’ life. It was a period during which the two were particularly close and it is a period that received little coverage in his autobiography, “Why Should White Guys Have All The Fun.”
“During his lifetime, Reginald F. Lewis accumulated great wealth and arguably the richest African-American on the planet. This book is not about his wealth. It is about Reginald F. Lewis long before the wealth. It is about the challenges he faced during this 10-year period and the way in which he overcame them. It is about how he transformed himself from being ordinary to become extraordinary”-Lin Hart
