Rich Egger’s guests on Emphasis are Cesar Suarez, Ryan Lilly, and Eric Dilts. They talk about the Sustainable Business Center in Galesburg.
Suarez is the city’s economic development director, Lilly is manager of the Entrepreneurship Center of West Central Illinois (which is located at the SBC), and Dilts is the sustainability director at the SBC.
Rich Egger’s guest on Emphasis is social justice activist Prexy Nesbitt. He was in Macomb to speak with students at Western Illinois University and raise awareness of ongoing civil rights and freedom struggles in the United States and Africa.
Nesbitt said his family talked a great deal about Africa while he grew up on Chicago’s west side, yet it was still a life-altering experience when he first visited Tanzania as an exchange student in the mid-1960s.
