Kandi Burruss is Serving up Drama at OLG.
Bravo’s newest series“Kandi & The Gang” follows the heart and soul behind the Atlanta restaurant Old Lady Gang (“OLG”). In the heart of the city, #KandiBurruss and Todd Tucker run an ever-evolving restaurant empire. Their Southern-eatery, #OLG, named after the ‘Old Lady Gang’ consisting of Kandi’s mom, Mama Joyce, and Aunts Nora and Bertha, is busier than ever. The restaurant has been a fan-favorite with lines down the block and classic Southern dishes, but peeling back the curtains on this family-owned and operated restaurant reveals that mixing business and relatives can sometimes create a recipe for tension.     With tensions rising as family members don’t perform up to standards, a little tough love and a lot of restructuring will shake things up with the staff, whether they’re ready for it or not. We had a chance to talk to Kandi about the show and a little extra conversation about #gentrification in #Atlanta, the importance of being involved in #politics, and how living in an affluent Black neighborhood has always been her dream.

A Seat at the Design Table: Chaya Krinsky
Chaya Krinsky is the Co-owner of #TOV Furniture. After a career as a preschool teacher, Chaya was impacted by the big recession and motivated to do something different. Designing and selling furniture became her passion and her lifeline.    After years of success and attending the biggest furniture trade shows in the country, she realized there was a disparity between white and black furniture designers. This wasn’t due to a lack of ability, but a lack of resources and companies giving the opportunity.    Speaking with many interior designers at the Super Bowl of furniture, High Point Market, Chaya decided to give black designers a literal seat at the Tov Table. The result is a six BLACK designer-created collection called The VOICE Collection.    We talked to Chaya Krinsky about The VOICE Collection, her career as a furniture designer and Owner of TOV, and how she has kicked in the door for furniture designers of all races.

To Heal A Black Man: Christian Price
Christian D. Price is a Master Sergeant in the US Army, entrepreneur, and empowerment speaker who is using his platform to empower and uplift men of color. With over 17 years of service in the military as a First Sergeant and Master Sergeant and now as a serial entrepreneur, Christian is using his experiences to help empower men of color in the areas of mental health, entrepreneurship, and navigating as a black man in today’s society. Too often, healing conversations omit Black Men. In early stages such as childhood, black men are conditioned into “manning up” suppressing feelings which often lead to alarming rates of aggression and anger that carries onto adulthood. Being a black man in today’s society often comes with being demonized, criminalized, and harassed, which leads the narrative of black men carrying anger and doesn’t and won’t heal.
