Last month I had the honor of hearing Harvard Economist Professor Roland Fryer speak at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall (NOT pronounced like “van weasel”) in Sarasota. His presentation on economics and race was fascinating and what made the evening more interesting was was watching him speak as I sat backstage of the Van Wezel.
