America the Beautiful
This Frank A. Nix Lecture on Ethical Leadership was the keynote speech for the 18th Annual Blackburn Institute Winter Symposium, held at the Birmingham Sheraton Hotel.
Ben Carson presented his thoughts on America’s current social and political landscape. He examined the similarities between empires that declined and the United States and posited what should be done to deter America from following the same path. Dr. Carson talked about his personal formula for success and the philosophy that helped him overcome his obstacles. The title of his talk was “Think Big,” which he used as a mnemonic device for his formula for a successful life based on those letters. He also responded to questions from members of the audience.
