We'll spend the hour with Myron Robinson, who recently retired after 17 years as president and CEO of the Urban League of Greater Cleveland. Few people know more about the economic development challenges facing Cleveland's black community. And few have done more to meet those challenges. Recently, the local Urban League's Multicultural Business Training Center was honored by the Small Business Development Centers of Ohio as the best performing small business training center in the state. Since its inception in 2004, the center has helped 60 small businesses get off the ground. That's just one example of the work the Urban League is doing to promote economic independence. Much of the growth in those programs happened on Robinson's watch. We'll discuss with Robinson where the organization is today and where it's going in the future.
