Clifton L. Taulbert

Entrepreneur | Pulitzer Nominee | International Lecturer | CEO


Clifton Taulbert introduced the “Eight Habits of the Heart” to members of the United States Supreme Court, the United States Air Force Academy, Harvard University’s Principals Center, and the University of Chicago Graduate School of Education. Join us at the APSRC 2020 Virtual Conference, as he takes us on a journey to the Mississippi Delta where he personally experienced the Power of the Presence of ORDINARY PEOPLE who built community on his behalf. The timeless and universal Eight Habits of the Heart are just as vital today as they were a generation ago. When embraced and lived out, they become the “Power of Community” .. a force multiplier within our classrooms and lives.


About Clifton Taulbert:

Time Magazine’s recognition of Taulbert as one of America’s top emerging entrepreneurs gives credit to his Delta uncle, Cleve, who introduced him to the power of “gumption,” known today as an entrepreneurial mindset. His uncle’s story has been captured in the international bestseller, Who Owns the Ice House? This growth mindset propelled Taulbert into the world of fitness as the entrepreneur who assisted in bringing the Stairmaster Exercise System to the world. Taulbert, not one to rest on past successes, is now in his 6th year as the President and CEO of ROOTS JAVA COFFEE.


Taulbert, the writer, is recognized and embraced around the world, from South Africa to Australia. His first book, Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored, became an international bestseller and a major motion picture.


His reputation as a human capital development consultant has garnered him opportunities to address business and academic audiences nationally and internationally: Charles Stuart University Business School in Australia, Harvard University Principals Center, the United States Air Force Academy, the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank, Bank of America, ONEOK Pipeline Company, BMW, the Oklahoma Bankers Association, k-12 educators from his native Mississippi Delta to China, and international school leaders throughout Central America.
