Loved the episode with John David and Uncle Clifford
It showed the breadth and diversity of the black man.
So many versions of ourselves...
You allow us to see so many VERSIONS of ourselves! I too was in tears listening to Nia- as a seasoned 25 year black Executive... when I’m often the only one in the room full of ceilings I’ve helped to shatter. There is nothing more refreshing than listening to these podcasts not only for daily inspiration... but for a renewed EXPECTATION that our platforms afford us. I was encouraged by the reminder that our time is NOW to be exactly WHO we are... to be as “Black as we want to be”- “to commit ourselves in a way that our ancestors pushed for us. This is how I lead, how I live my life and what I’ve instilled in my beautiful daughters.
I love y’all... I LOVE US!! Thank you Cori And Charlie!!
