Raising Excellence w/Kellye Britton of The Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project

Raising Excellence w/Kellye Britton of The Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project

February 1, 2020

Welcome to episode one of four in our Black Future Month series.

Black Future Month is all about honoring those that came before us by investing in those coming after us.  How do we take the phrase I am my ancestors wildest dream and enrich it to the point that those who are next ultimately end up functioning at a level so much higher than our ancestor could dream.

We start by sitting down with Kellye Britton of The Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project (HDCDP) an Atlanta-based pipeline program that recruits, trains, and sends black youth to a summer debate residency program at Harvard. (Thats the official wording but in reality it is so much more than that).  Kellye has a passion for black youth and it is overly obvious as you listen.

She discusses the HDCDP methodology, her personal passions for enrichment, and even dives into strategic thought on how parents can really help....she also makes it plain that we are not raising children we are raising adults.

One tip she has and we support is simply - "Get out of their way"

For more information on the Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project please follow them on IG:@harvarddcdp or check out there website at:https://harvarddcdp.org/

“Sluttified” Creation w/Pinky Cole of The Slutty Vegan

“Sluttified” Creation w/Pinky Cole of The Slutty Vegan

January 26, 2020

Pinky Cole from The Slutty Vegan doesn't hold back on this episode.  If you have ANY desire to create, to build, to succeed, or to lead then skipping this episode of While Black isn't even an option for you.  

We travel down a hell of a path with Pinky and touch on motivation, drive, hustle, and strategy just to list a few.  You will get closer to the "opportunities" that she managed through in order to find greater later and for anyone with eyes, ears, or a nose you recognize that Pinky has not just found but actually created lighting in a bottle --- the beautiful thing about this episode is she drops nuggets (Vegan nuggets of course) on how you can to.  Remember she regularly has 3, 4, & 5 hour lines for a BURGER..she recreated a simple American burger into a true phenomenon ... 

You are up next!!!!

A Special Needs Superhero w/Libra Hicks

A Special Needs Superhero w/Libra Hicks

November 23, 2019

Welcome to a special episode of While Black - on this episode we go in detail on a topic that affects so many but is overlooked by so many more....our black children who have special needs.  Libra Hicks, our guest today, is unafraid and unapologetic about her blackness, her bluntness, and her ability to be the superhero that her special needs children require.  However, one of the many things that makes her super-dope is the fact that she created an organization, Our Children's Story, to help parents of children with special needs access the resources they need to be superheroes themselves. 

Go learn more about Our Children's Story on IG: @ourchildrens_story and follow Libra on IG: @librahicks
