Ms. Mateo is Director of Community-Based Initiatives at the Center for Court Innovation/Brownsville Community Justice Center and her mission as an organizing and social service field professional is to develop, beautify, and improve NYC's business and residential districts, starting with her hometown of Brownsville, Brooklyn of course.

    Join us for another episode of The Bklyn Combine podcast as Erica shares her journey with us and provides some possible solutions or as she likes to put it, "small, visible, tangible, wins that build on each other."

    We are the Bklyn Combine, a not-for-profit community organization. We work with schools, community organizations, and dedicated city officials to help provide mentorship, critical education, leadership, and social support programs to youth and young adults in low-income and underserved communities.

    Live From The Foxhole

    Live From The Foxhole

    On today's podcast we are reporting live from the foxhole. This is a metaphor for our place here in America. We are constantly at war for "a seat at the table", "getting in position", or ultimately, some sort of financial stability. We explore topics from capitalism to "diversity and inclusion" and let's not forget Barnabas's personal study of primates.

from a place of love

i LOVE what you gentlemen are doing and every episode is amazing but the audio almost makes it almost unlistenable.

i’ve shared your podcast with my people and unanimously, it’s the same comment.

i’m going to keep on listening! i hope that you all are aware of the ONe thing that may be stopping folks from becoming consistent followers.

peace...

The best podcast hands down!

This is my go to, food for thought brain stimulator! I love everything about these products and what they discuss to open that third eye of mine. I’m sure it’ll do the same for every critical Black thinker! Salute to the BKlyn Combine!

godshad ,

If you black and have no sense of self and even if you do come nourish ya soul with these great history lessons. The sound quality could be better it sounds like their far away from the mic.
