Each of these women represent the changing dynamic of power and influence in the landscape of public se

Now promoting womens rights and peace ‘Only in America’ “I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.”- Frederick Douglass- When I first met Don King in a living room at his Beverly Hills condominium on March 3, 1991, we were all fixated to the television screen as the late Rodney King was being savagely beaten by Los Angeles Police Department cops. Don King was the only individual in that room who realized how significant that moment was, and it was then I quietly wondered why is this man was a mere boxing promoter. It has been this intellectual prowess that has elevated him beyond iconic worl
