Sly James was sworn in as the 56th mayor in Kansas City, Missouri, history in 2011, and he served two terms, leaving in 2019. Sly’s life has always led to service of others, an attitude instilled in him by his parents. Sly served in the Marines during the Vietnam War, came back to Kansas City to study law, and then was a successful attorney before becoming mayor.
This episode was recorded on Zoom in early May for this podcast and our C-10 Mentoring & Leadership students. Even though it was well before the recent protests over racial injustice in the United States, Sly shares a lot of lessons that apply to what we’re facing as a country.
