Former Head of BET Debra Lee Talks About Her Book Titled “I Am Debra Lee”

From a Washington Post review by Alexis P. Williams of the book by Debra Lee titled “I Am Debra Lee”:

“What salary do you see yourself making in life?” When Debra Lee, then a young general counsel at BET, was posed this question by Robert L. Johnson, the network’s founder, she sold herself short. “‘A million? That’s it?’ he said with a smirk,” she writes in her new memoir. But to Lee, making it in the media business was about more than making money. It was about lifting “an entire people” or, as she was often told, doing it “for the culture.”
