About the presenter:
Clifton Taulbert is the president and CEO of the Freemount Corporation, a human capital development company and the President and CEO of Roots Java Coffee - an African-American owned national coffee brand, importing coffee from the country of Rwanda.  A USAF veteran, Taulbert has been a leader in the Tulsa community for many years.

Voice of America and C-Span 
introduced Clifton Taulbert, a Pulitzer nominated author, as a historian and keeper of Southern Culture.  Since the publication of Taulbert's first of fourteen books, his award-winning cultural biography, Once Upon A Time When We Were Colored - which also became a major motion picture - Taulbert has traversed the globe lecturing from Europe to Australia, Canada and Mexico.

Inspired by the international reception to his very first publication, Taulbert has since written thirteen additional books, which includes Eight Habits of the Heart, the book read by Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, garnering Taulbert an invitation to address members of the US Supreme Court.  Taulbert's fourteenth book, The Invitation, the "Old South" meets the 21st Century as this black writer finds himself as a house guest of a white South Carolina plantation owner.  Their paths crossed for five years and the intereaction between the great-great-grandson of slaves and the family who historically were slave-owners is indeed an invitation for all.
