Summer is right around the corner and pretty soon, we will be planning our road trips. No trip would ever be complete without music—R&B, Blues, Gospel—genres founded by black people. From the days when music lifted our souls and led us to freedom, to crossover styles that unify us as a country, music has touched our souls. We dedicate this issue to Black Music Month as we say goodbye to George Clinton, the Funk Master who is taking his final bow into retirement, introduce you to local talent and much more.
A leader who moves to his own beat is Robert L. Burns, the founder and CEO of R. L. Burns, Inc. The construction management company has been involved of some of the most important projects in Florida. In this issue, he talks about how he and his team overcame obstacles to still be around 25 years later. We also take time share what is on men’s minds. Shaquille O’Neal is fighting heart disease; James Brown of CBS sports educates on leadership; and in New York, one group offers a place for brothers to hang out and talk about everything from health to wealth. Don’t miss these stories.
Speaking of wealth, did you know that millennials have far more debt than any other generation; but they also are much better at saving? Check out what the younger citizens have to say about spending.
