Welcome to episode one of four in our Black Future Month series. Black Future Month is all about honoring those that came before us by investing in those coming after us.  How do we take the phrase I am my ancestors wildest dream and enrich it to the point that those who are next ultimately end up functioning at a level so much higher than our ancestor could dream. We start by sitting down with Kellye Britton of The Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project (HDCDP) an Atlanta-based pipeline program that recruits, trains, and sends black youth to a summer debate residency program at Harvard. (Thats the official wording but in reality it is so much more than that).  Kellye has a passion for black youth and it is overly obvious as you listen. She discusses the HDCDP methodology, her personal passions for enrichment, and even dives into strategic thought on how parents can really help....she also makes it plain that we are not raising children we are raising adults. One tip she has and we support is simply - "Get out of their way" For more information on the Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project please follow them on IG:@harvarddcdp or check out there website at:https://harvarddcdp.org/ Lastly, don't forget to get social with us  IG: WHILE_BLACK; TWITTER @whileblackpc; FB @whileblackpodcast or email: whileblackpodcast@gmail.com

  Lisa Cunningham is a dope producer, significant influencer, was there during the infancy of Atlanta hip hop...She is also a lesbian woman who is optimistic about the future of black folks and the LGBTQIA community.  These are the reasons the we sought her out - we wanted to sit down and learn how to be the best ally possible to the LGBTQIA community.  If we are honest we as black people want strong allies and i think that creates the responsibility for us to also be strong allies. By now you should know how we roll on While Black which means if it involves black folks and we can teach you more about it then you should expect it from us. So sit back, open your ears and your mind and learn something about the LGBTQIA community - you may find that it makes you a better person in general.

Kimonis Sadiq definitely has a wealth of opinions. it seems as though his opinions aren't driven by much fact though. With quotes from Malcolm X he attempted to heighten Trumps status by saying blacks hated him because white people said to, siting appearances on the Fresh Prince of Belair and his references in rap songs. However Sadiq neglected to reference the Central Park Five case, or his lawsuit for discriminatory practices, all the reports of his casual racism, etc... Along with a host of other reasons that make him a horrible person. With all that said and more I haven't said, I would like to warn you about the responsibility of being a consumable media and hopefully having people in your podcast that speaks truth to power, and doesn't come off sound like a black russian operative, such as the ones that infiltrated our community in 2015-16 election cycle.
