Earl Graves on Work

Earlgraves"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.
