Earl Graves on Work
"By the time I claimed my diploma [at Morgan State in 1957], I had established a reputation as the hardest-working man on campus. I mowed lawns, waited tables, was a vendor at baseball games, worked security in a department store and sold soft drinks in the stands at Baltimore Memorial Stadium. (The white guys who called me "boy" got a little something extra in their cups.)"
-- Earl G. Graves, publisher & CEO of Black Enterprise Magazine, in How to Succeed in Business Without Being White.
