Kay Cole James; African-American Woman Takes Over Think Tank Leadership

The greatest conservative think tank group in the nation has a new president, and she’s a black lady—Kay Cole James.

The Heritage Foundation—a Washington DC think tank organization—was founded in 1973 to “promote and formulate conservative public policies on the basis of the principles of free enterprise, individual freedom, limited government, a strong national defense, and traditional American values.”

Several Republican presidents have relied a lot on the Heritage Foundation for both personnel and conservative ideas.


Whenever a Republican president gets into the White House, many Heritage employees often move into vital policy positions to help the new Administration.

In fact, Ronald Reagan once admitted that the ‘Heritage Foundation’ played an “important force” in his successes as the president.

With over 500,000 members worldwide there is no doubt that the organization is a policy powerhouse.

Kay isn’t just a legend in Republican circles, but also in Black circles. Kay is a compassionate, smart and nurturing woman who’s dedicated fully to the advancement of African-Americans. She even founded her own Black think tank about a decade ago.

Kay started her public career at the ‘National Commission on Children’ during the Reagan Administration.

Kay then advanced to become the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy’s associate director.

Later, she served public affairs’ assistant secretary at the ‘U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ during President George H.W. Bush.

Kay returned to the federal government in 2001 to serve as President Bush’s director of the ‘Office of Personnel Management.’

Actually, the list is long.

As secretary, Kay led the statewide welfare reform project. Needless to say, Kay has always led by example, and seemingly she will continue that way.

Already, she has stated that she will take Heritage Foundation to places “where it hasn’t been before.”

James also loves her skin color. In a recent interview, she stated, “As African-Americans, we were survivors.” she said while recalling the struggles that many African-Americans faced while she grew up.

“But I’ve never had a victim mentality—either as a woman or as an African-American.”

Kay went on to reveal her plan for the think tank.

“Heritage is a masterpiece,” she added. “And it can’t get better than what we are. But what I think our team can do better is, taking that data, information, demographics, and research and then take it to places where it hasn’t been before.”

“I plan to ensure that our good news gets into minority communities and the youth culture in the country. My objective is to assist a Bernie Sanders voter to know well why the conservative policy is the best for people.”
