    Ep84: The Road Less Traveled w/ Antwan Eady, Emerging Author and Founder of BlackCreatorsinKidLit

    Ep84: The Road Less Traveled w/ Antwan Eady, Emerging Author and Founder of BlackCreatorsinKidLit

    The conversation that you will witness today is a dream come true, and one that I’ve been looking forward to since I began this podcast! I don’t “follow” a lot of people- but today you will meet the FIRST person I began to follow in college, my Orientation Ambassador/ fellow greek/ Emerging Scholars colleague whose last name was the same as my own.

    Antwan Eady is  BLACK BOY BRILLIANCE in every single way, and today we get to dive into who and what has shaped Antwan into who he is today! Reigning from the backwoods of Garnett, South Carolina, Antwan opens up and shares with us in his first ever podcast episode, his newest journey to becoming a published author! 

    While we get to celebrate with Antwan what he has coming down the pipeline, we learn about what deeply drives Antwan to never settle in his life, which includes several losses that were defining moments in his life. We’re talking about grief, authenticity, mentorship, exposure and so much more! 

    EADYYYYYYY! Our official call on campus to one another in our Clemson days, in the year of my greatest growth in life, it is an honor to share this conversation as the final interview of 2020! 

    You are a phenomenal man-- and the Hometown Hero we all needed!

    Be sure to connect with Antwan and stay updated on his book projects!

    Ep83: Living Life with No Excuses w/ Georgina 'Joy' Dukes of JoyofRomeo.com

    Ep83: Living Life with No Excuses w/ Georgina 'Joy' Dukes of JoyofRomeo.com

    Today is another episode too many years in the making from someone who was a New Geechee FIRST! This young lady was the first person to contribute to the New Geechee blog with “Healing the Health of Southern Hospitality”, back in May of 2018! 

    Meet boss mom extraordinaire Georgina Dukes, affectionately known as JOY, who is showing the world how to balance motherhood, career, and self care! 

    Born and raised in the great town of Monetta, SC, Joy learned early and quickly about how to survive the negativity of the world and the value of being a member of the community! Her resilience story begins as early as elementary school and only continues to strengthen when college puts her face to face with events that would change her life, forever! 

    An incredible mom of a brilliant and fearless black boy named Romeo, her ultimate goal in life is to HEAL, and she is doing just that through her blog JoyofRomeo.com, which has gone VIRAL this year due to a entry titled “ When My Beautiful Black Boy Grows from Cute to a Threat”, her new collaboration with AllMomDoes blog,  her full time career working with UniteUS, and her new business JoyofRomeo Transportation, which employs those in her hometown of Monetta, SC.

    Talk about a boss? 

    All of this before the age of 30! I'm partial to Joy’s illumination because she’s a Delta, more specifically my neo, who I saw outwork us all and live out the “No excuses mentality”, and she’s a Taurus, so there’s that! 

    Oh Joy--- you make it all look easy but i know that you worked for every single thing you earned and its been beautiful watching you continue to grow these last 10 years!

    Ep82: Just Keep Living w/ Charity Bailey, Media Personality & Host of 'Girl, We Need To Talk'

    Ep82: Just Keep Living w/ Charity Bailey, Media Personality & Host of 'Girl, We Need To Talk'

    It's the holiday season, and I wanted to bring a special episode to us all as this year has been one for the books. We’re grieving!!! And I want to remind you that in your grief, seen and unseen, that you are not alone.

    Today you all will get the chance to hear from television host and media personality Ms. Charity Bailey. You may have seen her smile on RightThisMinute as she tells stories that move the culture forward, bringing her personality and unapologetic black womanhood to the world. 

    What you don’t know, is behind that smile, is a woman grieving the loss of the father whose journey to television has been far from conventional. And that’s what we’re discussing today, her YMP journey as a journalist whose gone from CA to NC to AZ,  and how she turned her pain into passion with her new web series on Youtube “Girl, We Need To Talk”

    In knowing Charity for the last 3 years, one thing sticks out most to me, something my grandmother always reminded me of—KEEP LIVING. 

    Life is one hell of a ride that if we are willing to take,which will give us beautiful and not so beautiful experiences to learn from. Never stop learning YMPs. Never stop pursuing your dreams. Never let life take you all the way down. 

    In the words of a great songwriter Donnie McClurkin, we fall down, but we get up. I’m so excited for you to join our conversation and pray that your heart is healed as you join in.

    Ep81: What It Means To Be 'Cultured and Country' w/ Mayor Terrence Culbreath

    Ep81: What It Means To Be 'Cultured and Country' w/ Mayor Terrence Culbreath

    We’re back! With another episode of “Hometown Heroes” and listen—what a way to close out 2020! Earlier this summer, I was introduced to a man who Ive heard of many years ago, and BAM! We hit off instantly! Today, you will meet the brilliance that is Terrence Culbreath, Mayor of the great city of Johnston, SC

    I’m sure you are wondering, well where is Johnston? How does one become a mayor? And Terrance is going to tell us alllll about it! We’re going to get the inside scoop on life as an only child growing up in the country and the endless possibilities that Terrence knew were possible, which led him on the path towards a multipassionate career in music, the arts, and politics.

    Like many of us country kids, Terrence left, but something brought him back! I had to find out from Terrence what it has been like to return home and advice her gives to those who have what is known as “survivors remorse” who know they want to give back but don’t know how!

    Mannnnn, to say this conversation fed my soul would be an understatement. How refreshing to speak with a politician who is far from average? If nothing else, I hope this conversation reminds you that your brilliance is also complete with endless possibilities, regardless of where you come from!

    In closing, Terrence, Mayor Culbreath, you are black boy joy at its finest. I told Terrence off the record, I was energized by his confidence and down to earth nature and it made me wanna do more, be more, and love my community more! The sky is not even your limit, our beloved hometown hero!

    Ep80: The BIG LEAP w/ Sedric Warren of Sed Talk Podcast

    Today we are speaking with my boy Sedric Warren of Columbia, SC. #HometownHeroes

    Sedric is a fellow podcaster, public health professional, brother, son, USC graduate, Alpha Man, so many things but we are going to unravel what it is like to be Sedric Warren.

    We’re going to talk about Sedric’s upbringing and what has been his foundation of growing up in Columbia. We’re going to travel through college and some of the uncertainties that came about and all of the multiple changes that he had to endure in order to get on a path that he felt was right for him. And then we lead into the BIG LEAP- what was the leap that Sedric had to take in order to take back control of his life? Myself having taken a couple of leaps of faith like Sedric, I understand exactly what he’s talking about and to hear his story has inspired me beyond measure and I hope it inspires you!

    Before I go, Sedric you are amazing. You are showing little girls and boys across the world that we have to believe in ourselves, and that if we continue to follow our bliss, we will be on that path that we are looking for. Thanks for being a #HometownHero.

    Ep79: The Road to Riches w/ K. Donovan Williams, Author of Trajectory

    Ep79: The Road to Riches w/ K. Donovan Williams, Author of Trajectory

    #HometownHeroes Comes a little closer to my hometown with a stop in the great city of Summerville, SC. Today we meet hometown hero Donovan Williams, a young man who I’ve respected and admited since our early days of summer camp in 2006.

    K. Donovan Willams is a proud husband, father, son and is the author of the conversation starting book titled Trajectory: Reflections of a Young Black Man from Summerville. Released in 2019, Trajectory takes us along for the journey of a lifetime through Donovan’s experiences with himself, his loved ones, and most importantly, God. A work complete with variety and vulnerability, this piece of work captures your heart from cover to cover.

    Donovan wants to make an impact- and as I shared earlier, his life is a living example of how one should continue to evolve, continue to grow, and continue to meet challenge with courage. I especially enjoy our conversation, two black kids from the 843, now two Clemson graduates from the lowcountry, around womanhood and manhood, the lessons of the lowcountry, and how God is at the center of it all- yall know I’m not afraid or ashamed to talk about God here! 

    This book is timeless! And it’s one of those books you gift to your loved ones, in hopes that it will open up conversations that draw you closer to one another. You can follow Donovan @kdonovanwilliams and I advise that you head over to Amazon now to grab your copy today.

    Donovan- my guy…. you’ve always been a shining star in my eyes! You are a model man, and everyone who knows you, and those who get the chance to know more about you, should consider it an honor to have a spirit like yours in our lives. Thank you for being the hero that God created you to be. I’m proud of you! *pops my collar*
