Wes Hall faced racism as he climbed corporate ladder. He wants to make sure others don't have to
When he was 12 years old and still living in Jamaica, Wes Hall remembers his mother beating him so badly in public that a passing one-legged man tried to intervene.
"He said to my mom, 'You should stop beating that boy. One day that boy could be the one that you rely on to look after you,'" Hall, now a leading Canadian businessman, told The Current's Matt Galloway.
"I remember saying, 'Is he right? Am I going to be somebody? Am I going to be special in the future?'"
