Our guest today, Ms Ann Hill Bond, knows her stuff and kicks out some dope information on the power and importance of agriculture.  We all know our brutal history and forced contribution to this country via agriculture yet, in more modern times, we have been all but excluded from this industry. 

Tune in, pay attention, and learn but before i leave let me hit you with a quote that Ms Ann Hill Bond shared with us.

"When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said 'Let us pray.' We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land." - Desmond Tutu

My Life, My Love, My Way w/ Lisa Cunningham

October 19, 2019

 

Lisa Cunningham is a dope producer, significant influencer, was there during the infancy of Atlanta hip hop...She is also a lesbian woman who is optimistic about the future of black folks and the LGBTQIA community.  These are the reasons the we sought her out - we wanted to sit down and learn how to be the best ally possible to the LGBTQIA community.  If we are honest we as black people want strong allies and i think that creates the responsibility for us to also be strong allies.

By now you should know how we roll on While Black which means if it involves black folks and we can teach you more about it then you should expect it from us.

So sit back, open your ears and your mind and learn something about the LGBTQIA community - you may find that it makes you a better person in general.

Catch up to and follow Lisa on her IG @captcunningham or hit her website at www.ihavethesecret.com

Dope Books - “Dear Martin” w/Nic Stone

October 15, 2019

On todays episode of While Black we sit down with Nic Stone author of the New York Times best seller "Dear Martin".  For any of our long time listeners you have heard Vince mention this book many times.  

Nic shares details on her upcoming projects (DOPE BOOKS AHEAD) and shines light on the political and racial high school world that Justyce, Manny, SJ, and Jared on share and navigate inside of Dear Martin  

If you are a young black teen or the parent of a young black teen we HIGHLY SUGGEST that you get close to this book.  I promise it will open up the worlds of politics and race in high school for you in a way you may not have expected.

Here is a quick synopsis on the book and please go follow Nic on IG: @nicstone and dont forget to get social with While Black - IG: WHILE_BLACK; TWITTER @whileblackpc; FB @whileblackpodcast or email: whileblackpodcast@gmail.com 

Synopsis:

Nic Stone's Dear Martin tells the story of an Ivy League-bound African-American student named Justyce who becomes a victim of racial profiling. He struggles to reconcile the fact that he's a "good kid" with suddenly being in police handcuffs. In the months that follow, Justyce confronts injustices and micro-aggressions he experiences at his mostly white prep school and the fallout from his brief detainment.

The Amber Guyger Trial & Castle Doctrine (RIP Bothem Jean)

October 6, 2019

White Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger was convicted and sentenced to 10 years for the murder of Botham Jean.

This episode is far from our normal format - we skip all of our normal upfront banter (No While Black Isht - No Dope Quotes) instead we head straight into the details and break down the Amber Guyger Trial for you.  We brought back Criminal Defense attorney Ecleynne Mercy (IG: MercyLaw_GA) and Criminal Defense attorney and Former Federal Agent Mac (twitter: Macspeakslegal) along side marketing expert T Adeola (Twitter: @stemwhisperers & @tembo8482) to break down this case, the sentence, the optics, and the impact on our culture at large.

BTW Allowing Castle Doctrine into the case was a smart strategy - listen to learn more about why!

If you followed this case at all and care about understanding the details as well as how this case will impact you then you MUST tune in and listen.
