by / October 15, 2014 News 7 Comments

Born to a 17-year old single mother and placed in special education as a child, Dr. Boyce Watkins has risen above the obstacles to become one of the leading black scholars in the world today.

In college, he was the Wall Street Journal Outstanding Graduating Senior in Finance with a triple major in Finance, Economics and Business Management.  He went on to earn a Masters Degree in Mathematical Statistics and a PhD in Finance at The Ohio State University.  During his year of graduation, Dr. Watkins was the only African American in the world to earn a PhD in Finance.

As a public intellectual, Dr. Watkins has changed the definition of what it means to be a black scholar and leader in America.  With a commitment to bringing his knowledge to the people, Dr. Watkins has made thousands of appearances in national media, including CNN, BET, MSNBC and many others.

  1. While Waiting For Our Brother Dr. Boyce's Video To Correct Itself In His Attempt To Share His Reasoning Behind The Black Man's Lack Of Ownership In Business, If I May Attempt To Share My Views, May I!?

    First Of All, I Applaud Our Brother Dr. Boyce For Have The Determination And Stick To It Ness To Surpass The Goal Of Getting His Education, If Not For Himself, For His Mother!
    Innately, He Must Have Loved Working With Numbers Being A Major In Finance, Economics And Business!
    Each Major Correlating To The Other!
    Now, With The Wall Street Journal's Eyes Upon Him, They Would Make Sure That He Enrolled In The Proper School Which Is Great Being The ONLY AFRICAN AMERICAN IN THE WORLD TO EARN A PHD IN FINANCE!
    Great, Great, Great!
    Like I Shared, I Applaud Him!

    But I Submit To You, Us, Do The Teachings That They Taught Him Apply To Our Special Circumstances And Situations!?
    They Applied To His!
    Are We Are A People In A Different Social Structure Than When He Put In His Bid To Become Self Employed!?
    Why With A Black Man In The White House, We Are Blacked Out!?
    The Black Man Is Doing Worse Today Economically, But Spends Over Two Trillion (2,000,000,000,000) Dollars A Year!
    What Are We Doing With Our MONEY!?

    HERE IS WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING WITH OUR MONIES!
    First, We Are Skilled People, Some Of Us!
    Know What We Do Best And Then Do It For Yourselves!
    If It Is A Service, Provide For Your People And Charge For Your Services!
    We Are Teachers, Teach Our Children And People HOW TO!
    If You Can Fix Things And Are Good With Your Hands, Charge For Your Services!
    Whatever It Is That We Are Good At, Provide For Your People Who Needs That Service!

    THAT'S THE EASY PART, NOW COMES DEALING WITH OUR OPPRESSORS!
    We Are A People Who Have No Assets!
    No Money In The Bank!
    No Collateral For Bank Loan Besides The House That Is Behind On Mortgage!
    And The List Goes On!
    But My People, What We Can Do To At Least Start Our Own Businesses Is Find What Is Needed, Buy Wholesale, Sale Retail Giving The Buyer Discounts!
    Sell Merchandise Out Of Your Car If We Have One!
    On The Streets, Door To Door!
    Then Comes The Law Concerning Paying Taxes!
    Having A Store Front Or Building!
    Zoning Laws And Corporations!
    The Road Is Rough, But Anything Worth Having Is Worth Hard Work!
    The Most Important Thing Is To Start Patronizing Every Black Business That We Can!
    Know What We Need And Buy And Start Supplying Ourselves!
    Don't Patronize Other Nationalities That Takes Our Money Out Of Our Communities And Replace Nothing In Its Place!
    Pool Our Resources People, We Must Do For Self!
    Now I Will Go Back And See If Dr. Boyce's Video Is Confirming What I Already Know, But Willing To Listen And Learn!

    MAY THE LIGHT OF TRUTH SHINES RAYS OF WISDOM UPON YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS TO OVERSTAND THAT WE MUST BE PRODUCTIVE AS THE KNOWLEDGE OF SELF IS BEING REVEALED!
    PEACE BE UNTO YOU THE PEOPLE OF GOD!
    WE ARE ONE WITH GOD!
