Thursday, “NewsOne Now'”with Roland Martin covered the 17th Annual Rainbow PUSH Wall Street Project Economic Summit, which kicked off Tuesday in New York City. Day one began with a youth summit event and career symposium, and ended with a session that honored former New York City mayor David Dinkins and a tribute to black media.

The youth summit, titled “McDonald’s Showcase of the Stars,” featured entrepreneur Kwame Jackson of NBC’s “The Apprentice.” The afternoon career symposium welcomed John W. Rodger, Jr., chairman and CEO of Ariel Investments to discuss opportunities for minorities on corporate and non-profit boards. “People [of color] tend to be quiet or timid in the board room about supplier diversity or corporate diversity, so how do we change it? We can make things better for the next generation of women and people of color,” Rogers asked the crowd as moderator. “We imply that by putting people in the right place [position as far as COO, CFO, and CEO] that things will automatically get better.”

The day closed with an opening reception and tribute to  black media. Companies honored included: Johnson Publishing Company, National Newspaper Publishers Association, The Positive Community, Black Enterprise, the Daily Challenge and The New York Amsterdam News. David Dinkins was also honored Tuesday evening with The Percy Sutton Award.
