At the beginning of my talk I always ask the same question: “Who thinks Birmingham has reached its potential?”
No one has ever raised a hand. Not one hand out of thousands of people.
How’s that possible?
Birmingham’s beautiful; our people are smart and generous—and we’re located in the heart of the South—the fastest growing region in the United States.
Some blame our lack of progress on race—some on poor leadership…but The Washington Post has laid it out for us.
