John Mitchell – The Man Who Ran the Planet

Editor’s note: This video was produced and published a year ago.  It’s as important now as it was then.

WTVR produced a great video on the iconoclastic editor of the Richmond Planet and civil rights leader John Mitchell and the lack of recognition he has received. A contemporary of Maggie Walker, he very much deserves to be enshrined along side her as a fearless civil rights pioneer and one of the fathers of black capitalism and Jackson Ward. Maybe this video and upcoming documentary will do something to correct this.
