    Interview: Liz Johnson- Paralympic Swimming Champion/Co-Founder of The Ability People

    Interview: Liz Johnson- Paralympic Swimming Champion/Co-Founder of The Ability People

    Liz Johnson is a Paralympic Swimming Champion and a champion for the rights and opportunities of the disabled community. When she left her athletic career behind and began pursuing a career, she found that the considerations for the disabled community were working against them, not for them. She co-founded The Ability People to help bridge gaps and advocate for disabled people in the workforce. From sparse public transportation to a lack of elevators, it's no wonder why the unemployment rate within the community is so high. Liz is working to show everyone that the way someone is different than you should not be their defining factor in your eyes, but it also does no one any good to ignore those differences. Go to a place of discomfort to be able to grow.

    Sylvia Robinson: The "Mother of Hip Hop"

    Sylvia Robinson: The "Mother of Hip Hop"

    Not only was Sylvia an incredibly talented performer herself, playing guitar on Ike & Tina tracks as well as her own smash hits like "Love is Strange" and "Pillow Talk", Sylvia was known for her ear for hit tracks. The mind behind some of hip hop's most iconic, recognizable, and influential songs, she was an executive at Sugar Hill Records. "Rapper's Delight" and "The Message" changed the game forever, and it makes you wonder... where would hip hop be without her? Rapper's Delight is responsible for crossing genre lines and introducing the world to the music that was happening on the streets in Harlem.
