Among advertising sales leaders in the media community, none equal the tenure and credentials of Louis Carr, who for the past 35 years has served as President of Advertising Sales for BET Networks, written two best-selling books, founded an organization to advance positive masculinity, introduced more than 200 Black students to careers in advertising through the Louis Carr Internship Foundation and Waymaker Journal, and been a voice of Black leadership for the advertising and media community. Yet, he maintains his humility and passion for his work. In our wide-ranging Legends & Leaders Conversation, Louis told me when he looks at his career, he is "in amazement of it, not by what I've done, but what people have done for me and the opportunities that people have given to me."
