Carl Ware talks about his new book "Portrait of an American Businessman: One Generation from Cotton Field to Boardroom"
Show Notes

Mr. Carl Ware is one of the greatest success stories to come out of Coweta County. 

Born in Arnco back in the segregated south of 1943, he grew up on a sharecropper farm and eventually ascended into the world of Atlanta politics, revolutionizing how city business was run with the implementation of the "25-percent policy."

Ware, The Coca-Cola Company’s first black group president, talks about how he used his power to hasten the end of the apartheid regime in South Africa.

Ware helped revolutionize the corporate work environment for women and minorities with a legacy built on inclusivity. He recently published his autobiography - “Portrait of an American Businessman” - and he was kind enough to drop by to speak about the book and his incredible journey.
