The Lincoln Laureates

Frank Clark - Your Word Is Your Bond

Episode Summary

Frank Clark's story is not a fabrication for film. It is a reality saga that took him from the mailroom to the corner office. In this episode of the Lincoln Laureates, you'll hear what drove Frank Clark to become the first African-American CEO of the Fortune 100 energy company, ComEd. As a native of Chicago's Woodlawn and West Chatham neighborhoods, Mr. Clark lived the realities of racial division and injustice. In this dialogue, we'll get to the heart of that experience. You'll also hear what Abraham Lincoln's life has to teach us about educating equality. Our guest host for this conversation is award-winning broadcast journalist, Jim Bohannon.
