Basically, Hannah, Jose, or LaKeshia ... I'm Qualified, Nice To Meet Ya.
This week on The Basically Brown Podcast we are all about Growth & Acceptance. We kicked off the show by discussing Kyle Kashuv.  The Parkland Shooting Survivor who was previously accepted by Harvard has recently lost his chance at attending the Ivy League School due to racist tweets he posted when he was younger. He's since apologized citing surviving the shooting as a major change in his thinking, but Harvard isn't budging.  We talked about it, but what do you think?  Do people really evolve in thinking ... Or are we to assume that a tiger never changes its stripes? Hannah, Jose, or LaKeshia ... name association.  Do you judge people based on their name alone? A Caucasian woman named Lakeisha feels like she's experienced "The Black Woman" ... But does a name outside of your skin color qualify you to speak on life experience outside of your own? Brown & Corporate is our main topic this week ... How has things changed? Or have things changed?  How can we continue to go up from there? We're talking about our experiences & we'd like to hear yours too. Of course we've got Brown Bosses (you never have to ask) check out these AMAZING minority owned businesses Nannas Babies Inc. - A wonderful nonprofit organization!

Basically, the art of letting go.
This week on The Basically Brown Podcast, we're cleaning out our closets ... Or are we?  What about YOU? When's the last time you've done a little Spring cleaning? Yes throwing out those shoes that are a little too snug, but you've had forever may be hard ... But how do you declutter yourself of people?   How hard is it to let go ? Is letting go the key to living  your best life?  In Brown Bag Talk we weighed in on The Central Park 5, Linda Fairstein, and Ava Duvernay's When They See Us series on Netflix.  Our Brown Bag quickly turned to Blue because there was no way we weren't going to talk about The Tennessee State University, Renauld Clayton, and over $86,000 worth of misappropriated funds.  Let's discuss! No worries, we still had time to share two amazing Brown Bosses with you.  Jaquilla J.

Happy Mother's Day from The Basically Brown Podcast!!

Basically, the choice is yours
This week on The Basically Brown Podcast we're discussing the necessity of college?  Is it for everybody?  Does college attendance equate success? We're also kicking off our "Hide It, We'll Find It" series.  The stigma is that if you want to hide something from a person of color, put it in your books, because we don't read.  We're looking to kill that by discussing books of substance on our show.  We're starting with Shook One - Anxiety Playing Tricks On Me, by Charlemagne Tha God.  Mental health has been a widely discussed topic lately in the brown community, from Taraji P. Henson founding the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation, to celebrities like Lloyd, Kanye West, and even the Rock speaking out on how mental health issues has plagued them and their families.  We look to join them in conversation and personal experience.   Won't you join us?  Check Out This Week's BROWN Bosses Ashley’s Creations llc Event Planning & Decorating 414-394-3968 Milwaukee WI Rebecca Clark Be Heard llc Children's bookclub 1h 6m
