One of the great pleasures of being around for awhile is getting to see how people you really admire grow and transform. I've been lucky enough to watch the upward trajectory of Donna Frisby-Greenwood. I first met her in her twenties when she started a youth group and have watched her as she went from one amazing job to the next including heading up Rock the Vote and working with Arnold Schwartnegger in his after school initiative. Everywhere she goes and everything she does has made a huge impact and now she's the Program Director in Philadelphia for the Knight Foundation. One of her excellent projects is BME - Black Male Engagement Project which highlights the positive things African American males are doing in their communities and allowing them to tell their stories their own way. A select group of these men will also get grants to help support their projects. The deadlines's coming up soon. Here's the interview I did with Donna and one of last year's recipients Alex Peay. Here is by clicking on this link. If you'd like to know more aobut BME and apply for a grant - click here.
Also I promised last week I'd post the link of my interivew with Writer Solomon Jones. Click here to listen.
