… “I have worked as a nonprofit executive with National Urban League affiliates and served as an Adjunct Professor of Political Science at Grand Rapids Community College for seven years, beginning my teaching there when I was 25 years old,” says (Rodney) Brown. With work as a community organizer for neighborhood associations and as a business consultant for various local and national business entities, Brown hopes to bring his education and work experience to the debate on race.
