A new article on TheGrio by Goldie Taylor talks about the impact that Steve Jobs had on not only her life, but the lives of African Americans as a whole.

Taylor talks about her time in Silicon Valley and how his name rang bells wherever she went.

Check out the piece below:

By the time I went to work in Silicon Valley over a decade ago, before a single iPod had been made, his name was legend. I was young, just 31, and a vice president of technology at a global marketing agency. Jobs had only just returned to Apple.

The move sparked a resurrection. In a few short years, he took the fledgling hardware maker he’d founded and transformed it into a company whose influence would touch and change lives in profound ways.

In the years since, Jobs led a cultural transformation, changing the way we listened to music, watched movies and connected with each other. To capture what Jobs meant to world economies, to the American psyche, would be like trapping lightening in a bottle.

But Jobs did just that.


Last Christmas, our family decided to round up all of the Apple products in the house and lay them end-to-end on the dining room table. Including the six MacBooks and iPhones we left back home, our family of eleven owned 20 pieces of Apple hardware. We had a treasure trove of digitized music, video and books stored in our iTunes libraries. Living and working in various cities around the country, there were 11 iPhones to keep in constant contact.

You have to wonder what the world would have been like without Steve Jobs. A college drop out, raised by adoptive parents, who got by on a public school education, Jobs went on to become a global icon as the much celebrated leader of Apple.
