#throwbackthursday: Johnnetta Cole has a special place in the United Way family. She was the first African-American female president of an historically black college and went on to chair on the board at United Way. She’s an impressive woman, glad we found these old bottles so we could share her story! #tbt  (at United Way)

Before you drive off into your weekend, don’t forget to snag tickets to the upcoming Budweiser Made in America tour. Proceeds from ticket sales will be going to benefit bi-coastal United Ways (in LA and in Philly).
By the way, the festival will now feature Miss Iggy Azalea. So fancy.

"I still see the same people on the corner that were there when I was eleven years old. It’s tough to evolve when your surroundings never change. So I wasn’t sure that I could be the one to make it out. The first time I took the GED, I failed. But for two months after that, I did practice tests everyday. And my aunt is a teacher, so when she was finished grading her papers, she’d help me break down all the problems that I couldn’t figure out. And there were a lot of people in my corner. My mom encouraged me, and my sister, and my grandmother. Then the second time I passed. It felt so good to see something in yourself, and then to see it come true.”

This reminds me of something that Wes Moore said at our Community Leaders Conference: "Potential is universal. But opportunity is NOT."
United Ways help to fill that gap, so more people like this, who see something in themselves, are empowered and enabled to fully realize it.
