Pinkett to discuss Black intellectual entrepreneurship

You’re fired!” are two words Donald Trump didn’t direct at Randal Pinkett last year. As a result, the former Rhodes Scholar and president & CEO of BCT Partners is now Trump’s apprentice. Pinkett will be on Grounds Feb. 9 to deliver U.Va.’s keynote Black History Month address on “Black Intellectual Entrepreneurship.” His talk, which is free and open to the public, will illustrate the importance of advanced academic degrees and bridging the digital divide. It will be held in Old Cabell Hall at 7 p.m. and is sponsored by the Office of African-American Affairs, the offices of the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Vice President and Chief Officer for Diversity and Equity, and the Black Student Alliance.
