This discussion surrounded Hugh's unique ancestry and unorthodox career. Hugh Price, former President and CEO, National Urban League is the author of five books, including most recently his memoir, This African-American Life. As president of the National Urban League from 1994 to 2003, Hugh launched the historic Campaign for African-American Achievement, spearheaded pressure on the federal government to combat police brutality and racial profiling, vigorously defended affirmative action and helped repair frayed relations between the black and Jewish communities.

Over the course of his career, he has been an editorial writer for the New York Times; Senior Vice President of WNET/Thirteen in New York, the nation's largest public television station; Vice President of the Rockefeller Foundation; and John L. Weinberg/Goldman Sachs Visiting Professor of Public and International Affairs in the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University.

Hugh earned his LL.B from Yale University and his B.A. from Amherst College, as well as the coveted Award of Merit from the Yale Law School Association.
