Description


How a tall, lanky kid from the Omaha Housing projects spent a lifetime helping others top their dreams. Above and Beyond recounts the long and grateful life of Dr. Rodney S. Wead. The beatings at the hands of "fake" police officers, blatant racism, and discrimination in his adulthood, paled in comparison to the pains of the abject poverty endured by the young Mr. Wead in north Omaha, NE. Yet, Dr. Wead used his athletic abilities and powerful memories to run a heroic life race. With the faith of a mustard seed, he led economic, social, cultural, and educational prosperity to include the nation's first black AM/FM radio station, community bank, hundreds of cooperatives, and college scholarships for hundreds of black youths. His friend, billionaire investor Warren Buffet, professional athletes and entertainers, CEOs, family, fraternal and lifelong friends consider Dr. Wead a visionary leader who talks the walk. His lived experiences and lessons from his civil rights days are relevant to today's conversation.
