Starbucks Morehouse

Starbucks’ executives on Morehouse campus discuss race, racism

Talk about timing.

Morehouse College hosted a town hall meeting Thursday afternoon with Howard Schultz, founder and executive chairman of Starbucks; and Rosalind Gates Brewer, Starbucks’ president of the Americas and chief operating officer.

The town hall, which had been planned for month, took place less than a month after two black males were arrested at a Starbucks in Philadelphia for hanging out at the café without buying anything.
