Ralph Baker, Jr. To Speak At Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Service


BROOKLYN, N.Y., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Ralph W. Baker, Jr., a native of Farmville, VA, is set to return home as the guest speaker for an event commemorating the life and vision of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The event will take place at First Baptist Church, the center for the local African American community under the leadership of Reverend L. Francis Griffin whose goal was to desegregate Prince Edward County's public schools during the 1950s and 1960s. Dr. King, who visited Prince Edward County and First Baptist in 1962, envisioned a possible role for Prince Edward County in the Civil Rights Movement.

Ralph W. Baker, Jr.

Mr. Baker received his B.A. in economics from Hampden-Sydney College (1989) and his MBA from the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia (1993). He has over 15 years of experience in corporate finance and mergers & acquisitions. He is currently the Executive Director of the New York Shock Exchange, a financial literacy program he started in 2006 to share his passion for investing and basketball with his 11 year old son and other boys his age. He is also the author of Shock Exchange: How Inner-City Kids From Brooklyn Predicted the Great Recession and the Pain Ahead. Shock Exchange examines the stock market and U.S. economy through the eyes of the kids and recounts Mr. Baker's fond memories of his early life in Farmville. Mr. Baker, who was also a small college All-American in basketball, has one son, Ralph W. Baker III, and resides in Brooklyn, NY. 

"This is a historic occasion, marking the 55th anniversary of the closing of the public schools in Prince Edward County and the 50th anniversary of their subsequent re-opening," Baker said. "Reverend L. Francis Griffin was our hero. We grew up with stories of how he spoke truth to power and helped change the course of history. It is only fitting that we celebrate this occasion at the church he led for so many years."
