    Unapologetic Stories with Wilson Black

    Wilson is a content creator. I first came across him on the YouTube show The Grapevine, discussing hot cultural topics. I was blown away by this brother's knowledge and delivery. Then he mentioned from Cameroon! It was only right that I reached out to him to be on the series. I hope you enjoy our conversation.

    In this episode we discuss:

    What are the issues between Africans and African-Americans? With so many cultures within the diaspora, is it possible for us to unite? How migration is changing African society? Where do the 2nd and 3rd generations fit in? Should Africans or first-generation be included in reparations?

    In this episode we discuss:
    What are some of the gaps in the tech space that you have seen? How did DivInc begin and the purpose? How can non-tech people get involved in the startup space? How would you explain to our white peers the significance of the organization? Contact DivInc:
