Today's Podcast is being released during one of the most
tumultuous and tragic periods in our country's recent history. The
past several weeks have seen the murders of innocent Black
Americans at the hands of law enforcement-Breonna Taylor and George
Floyd. And, the revelation that earlier this year, Ahmaud

In the face of these excruciating losses, and after hearing

our country and, the world screamed in unison, "ENOUGH!"
We've all had enough. We're fed up with Bigotry, fed up with
our communities being underserved and underrepresented and blamed
for the ills that lack of support has nurtured, fed up with
institutionalized, systemic racism, fed up with blatant in your

Jemal King, a former police officer, CJ, a bi-racial man, Karl, a
native of Barbados, and ET, who grew up in the inner cities of

plays itself out in the daily lives of people of color worldwide.
Today's Podcast will shed some light on what that continues to look
like for this fantastic foursome.
