Leadership in Times of Rolling Blackouts & a Look at Prince Hall

DESCRIPTION:
The crisis in Texas involving an overwhelmed power grid and millions being left in the cold presented a challenge and an opportunity for the state’s leadership, so James Keys and Tunde Ogunlana discuss the approach that has been taken and what is need for our society to better handle matters like these (01:23).  The guys also take a look at Prince Hall, founder of Prince Hall Freemasonry and a fascinating but an underappreciated figure from the time of our nation’s founding (42:54).
