Clifton Taulbert, a Pulitzer nominated author and the President and Founder of the Building Community Institute speaks throughout the world on the critical issue of building community, a set of emotionally satisfying relationships, within all the places of our living...creating an environment branded by Respect, Affirmation and Inclusion. He is also the author of the internationally acclaimed book, Eight Habits of the Heart, a book that provides the framework on which to build, maintain and sustain a powerful, effective and caring Community.
According to Taulbert, "By building a powerful, effective and caring community, we can transform our environment into one that values cooperative living, and welcomes diversity in all the areas of life. By creating an atmosphere that supports the timeless values highlighted in his writings and conversations, individuals become part of a dynamic working community, engendering greater productivity and personal fulfillment. Taulbert’s ideals of community extend the reach of the "Front Porch People", those he encountered while growing up in the Mississippi Delta.
