EXPLORATION

MY PERSPECTIVES ON HIP HOP, SPIRITUALITY, DIVERSITY, & EDUCATION

I look forward to exploring my thoughts with on various topics because I enjoy teaching, learning, and talking. More importantly, I enjoy sharing with others not just what I think, but also walking you through what I have done. As a former campus pastor, I have witnessed the growth of some beautiful people after they have accepted who they are. As a diversity professional, I know that I can positively influence how people learn by being intentional to connect with them. When I combine that with hip hop, I watch the world open up and more possibilities become real through art and courageously speaking out. 

Explorations will be another way to dive deeper with me on topics. Let's get started.

This podcast is done with my sister friend Adrienne "True Butterfly" Charleston. Adrienne and I often have great conversations about topics that I think would catch some off guard and others they would be relieved. We've decided to partner and create our very own podcast. We already have one episode posted and others recorded. Check out the first episode that is entitled "I Don't want to Talk about Whiteness Anymore." It is a provocative title, but I hope the content is what you take something away from.
