New member David Stubbs of RPC United Advisors forwarded his company's January/February newsletter to the BIA, which focused on the beginnings of Black History Month and prominent Black leaders in real estate.

RPC highlights a long history of accomplished and often overlooked leaders in our industry, including Benjamin Bannacker who is known as one of the designers of Washington, D.C., Ottaway W. Gurley, the founder of "Black Wall Street" in Tulsa, Philip A. Payton Jr. described as the "Father of Harlem," Atlanta's Maynard Jackson, and others.
