Roland Also Rolls in Toronto

CNN Contributor Roland Martin, host of TV One’s “Washington Watch,” is the first American to speak at the Black Business Professional Association (BBPA) 30th Annual Harry Jerome Awards Gala. Held last Saturday at the Toronto Congress Centre in Ontario, Canada, top black professionals throughout Canada gathered to hear Martin discuss what was described in a relase as “the urgency of economic and social mobility; developing skill-sets to move young professionals forward and entrepreneurship.”

The Jerome Awards are apparently often referred to as the “Canadian Oscars” to give you an idea what in the hell this is.
