Harmon, Sr., President and CEO of the African American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey (AACCNJ), recently interviewed Earl Brown, Berkeley College Campus Operating Officer (COO), Newark, on a live broadcast of talk radio station 920 The Jersey’s program, “Empowerment Hour.” Mr. Brown spoke about his new position as well as about how higher education can empower youth toward a path of success.

“For me personally, education has been one of the biggest builders of my self-confidence,” Mr. Brown said. “I struggled just like a lot of our inner-city, African-American and Latino students with staying focused … education is so important in building their confidence so that they will be successful.”

“We’re proud to have Earl Brown as our partner through his new role at Berkeley College in our efforts to pursue corporate focused initiatives that stimulate business growth on all levels,” Mr.  Harmon said following the interview.
