Abstract:

Association and broadcast executive Barbara Thomas was born on December 5, 1947 in Dublin, Georgia. One of thirteen children, she was raised by foster parents and graduated from Oconee High School in 1965. She received her B.A. degree from New York's Bernard Baruch College and her M.B.A. degree from Columbia University. While a university student, she clerked in Columbia Broadcasting System’s (CBS) radio division. After graduating, she moved into the television division. Thomas was the first African American woman to attend CBS’s School of Management. Thomas later became director of finance and administration for CBS, and left the network in 1989 after serving as the first African American woman to act as a senior vice-president. She left the network and served as chief financial officer for various health care organizations, other non-profit groups, and the National Black M.B.A. Association for two years before becoming its president in 2003.
