The Dr. Vibe Show (general)

Aisha K. Staggers had her first major publication, an album review, in The New Haven Register while just a sophomore in high school. Another series of reviews published in The Hartford Courant followed. By the time she reached college, Aisha was writing for the literary magazine and interning at a local radio station, ABC-affiliate as a writer in the news department and in the A&R department of an independent record company.

As a graduate student at Fisk University, Aisha asked Dr. Raymond Winbush to chair her thesis because 1) he was one of the most renowned voices in black culture and academia, and 2) he was a Prince fan. His scholarship and guidance led Aisha to an early career as a professor of social sciences and later an administrator in higher education.

Aisha has also served as a director of education and policy research centers and on the staff of legislative commissions. She previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats’ Women’s Caucus, an avid campaigner and has remained active in politics and public policy.

Aisha K. Staggers had her first major publication, an album review, in The New Haven Register while just a sophomore in high school. Another series of reviews published in The Hartford Courant followed. By the time she reached college, Aisha was writing for the literary magazine and interning at a local radio station, ABC-affiliate as a writer in the news department and in the A&R department of an independent record company.

His scholarship and guidance led Aisha to an early career as a professor of social sciences and later an administrator in higher education.

Aisha has also served as a director of education and policy research centers and on the staff of legislative commissions. She previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats’ Women’s Caucus, an avid campaigner and has remained active in politics and public policy.

Jill Jones is our special guest for this conversation. Ms. Jones is activist, feminist, former collaborator with Paisley Park.

Dr. Paul Miller is the Principal and CEO of Green Tech High Charter School, a highly successful school for boys in Albany, NY. An expert in urban education, Dr. Miller has specialized in school reform and redesign for over 20 years, counseling school officials and administrators on effective strategies to increase performance among black males and establish a culture of success. He has committed his life to educating and empowering low-income urban youth with the intention to facilitate change and undo the trend of academic underachievement that often plagues young black men from the inner city. The passion did not begin with his professional career, but was implanted in him as a youth growing up in the projects of Rochester, NY. Similar to many of his students, Dr. Miller understands the challenges that often knock young minority men off-course and hinder their ability to reach their full potential. However, he teaches students not to be victims, but to use adversity as fuel to succeed and rise above their circumstances.

Since taking over Green Tech in 2012, Dr. Miller has turned the school into one of the best in New York State. Under his leadership, graduation rates have soared – reaching an impressive 95% with a 100% college acceptance rate for graduates. In addition, students have earned over $25 million in scholarships, compared to only $200,000 before he arrived. Dr. Miller has been recognized by the City of Albany as a Man of Valor, and as one of the top 40 Under 40 African American Leaders by the City of Rochester, among many other accomplishments. He is often invited to speak to students and to offer strategic counsel to school leaders on improving school systems and more effectively engaging students. Dr. Miller has emerged as one of the top and most highly sought after urban education leaders in the nation.

Recently, Dr. Miller was live on our show talking about his article The School to Prison Pipeline.

During our conversation, Dr. Miller talked about:

– His experience with young people during the pandemic
– Being successful with his students with two-thirds of the funding that public school receives
– Systems that he and his team have put in place to set his students up for success
– His message for parents who are not happy with at pandemic schooling of their child(ren)
– The background behind the article
– Some ways that the education system is failing many African Americans and some of the ways that the education system is holding African American students back
– The importance of building systems that working for black and brown children in school
– The low graduation rate of African American males and some of his thoughts about this situation and the impact that the pandemic has had on this situation
– Some reasons why so many Black men ending up in prison and what can be done to change this
– His thoughts on some of the challenges that American public schools are having
– Some things that Black parents can do to produce better outcomes for their child(ren) in regards to school

Jeff Miller and Shawn Fry are both dads who’s mission is to change lives. As a parent of a child with Autism, Jeff has created Potentia workforce to help individuals such as his son find the right job when he is looking. With over 85% of neurodivese individuals being underemployed in the US, Potentia works with to help expand a organization’s neurodiversity programs. At 42, Shawn was diagnosed with autism. He sold his first business business to VC two years ago and helped launch Potentia. During COVID, Shawn and the team at Potentia created the Potentia Health Registry to open schools.

Jeff Miller has spent more than two decades in leadership roles in the human capital industry. He was president of a $350m recruitment firm, Cenergy Partners, which provided over 2,000 engineers and field workers to industries including energy, aerospace, manufacturing and technology. Jeff had full responsibility for day-to-day operations of this international firm, reporting to the board of directors, and successfully completed four acquisitions during his tenure.

Earlier in his career, Jeff was division president for Exxova, an Atlantabased technology consultancy where he built and led the firm’s largest division in providing innovative solutions to the healthcare industry.

Jeff was also a Sr. Vice president for KBR, an $88 EPC where he built and ran the firm’s fastest growing division. He also served as Vice President, Americas for NES, a global recruitment firm, where he built and led an international team responsible for record-setting results. Jeff has launched and led organizations, divisions and teams in the 20 largest markets in North America, as well as in Europe, Asia and Australia.

A native of the Boston area, Jeff remains a loyal Red Sox fan and highly limited former athlete. He lives in the Houston area with his wife Samantha, and son Charlie – an awesomely cool teenager on the autism spectrum.

Shawn Fry, became a successful executive and entrepreneur after being diagnosed with Asperger’s at age 42. He found success in his professional career only after he was afforded the opportunity as the CIO of several hospital systems to exercise a great deal of autonomy in his role.

Shawn’s propensity for detail, hard questions and divergent solutions produced millions in both new revenue opportunity and cost savings for his employer. His innovative approach to the complexity of healthcare data laid the foundation for his entrepreneurial healthcare technology firms centered around analytics, revenue cycle and clinical informatics. Through these ventures, he left corporate America behind, hired nearly 150 employees and created his own “neurodiverse workplace culture”.

Shawn found that by cultivating an environment dependent upon open, honest dialogue, clear communication and vulnerability, the workplace culture was more supportive and accommodating to everyone’s needs. People were happier, more productive and turnover rates were 0% after nearly 15 years. Shawn is a holder of multiple technology patents which he utilized to create dozens of healthcare analytics platforms. He remains a well-respected speaker and author on critical healthcare issues.

Shawn sold his company to private equity in 2019 and has dedicated the rest of his life to embracing neurodiversity and the powers it unlocks through thought leadership, personal security and self esteem in one’s uniqueness.

During our conversation, Jeff and Shawn talked about:

– Some background about Potentia, how they met and how they help the neurodiverse community
– Some of their memories growing up
– If they had any mentors when they were growing up
– Memories of when they first became a father
– How there role as a father changed over the years
– That if the traditions that they learned from their father been passed on to their kids
– If today’s young fathers have it more difficult than when they were young fathers
– A tough moment being a father and why was it hard
– The pandemic’s impact on their role as a father
– The three happiest moments in their life so far
– The greatest thing about being a father
– Their message for fathers

Cuisine Noir Magazine … Behind Business … The Good, The Bad And The Ugly is hosted by V. Sheree Williams, the publisher of Cuisine Noir Magazine and Dr. Vibe.

Cuisine Noir Magazine … Behind Business … The Good, The Bad And The Ugly are in depth conversations with people who have been featured in Cuisine Noir Magazine.

Recently, Andrea Lacy was on Cuisine Noir Magazine … Behind Business … The Good, The Bad And The Ugly. Andrea is the CEO of Luv’s Brownies.

Andrea Lacy established Luv’s Brownies in October 1996, first preparing her delicious morsels in her apartment and then moving to a professional kitchen as sales grew. Her story begins while attending San Jose State University, Aundrea struggled with algebra classes. She failed the same math class five times. Her counselor advised her to work with the Disability Resource Center and get tested for a learning disability. She was diagnosed with dyslexia.

But prior to discovering that she had dyslexia — during her first semester at SJSU, as a thank you gift she baked a friend some brownies. At the time she noticed the dough was thick but baked the brownies anyway. She revisited the brownie recipe and realized she transposed some numbers in her ingredients list without knowing she had dyslexia. Aundrea’s belief is some detriments are true blessings in disguise.

Luv’s Brownies come in 14 flavors including rocky road, peanut butter brownie s’more, coconut caramel, and mint chip, and they are sold online and shipped nationwide. The company has been featured in magazines such as Rachel Ray, Essence, and Ebony — and Aundrea has been featured on the cover of Black Enterprise magazine. She is also the author of Brownie Points: Seven Steps to Success for Woman Entrepreneurs from One Who Made It!

Luv’s Brownies®, Home of the Original Heart-Shaped Brownie®, and Luv Bites® (bite-sized heart-shaped brownies) are all registered trademarks of the Luv’s Brownies company. Luv’s Brownies is an LLC.

During our conversation, Ms. Lacy talked about:

– Being diagnosed with dyslexia when she was younger and the family support
– Working at HP for ten years
– The story behind Luv’s Brownies, using SEO to make the business successful and highlights of the journey, selling brownies at the San Francisco 49’ers stadium and the crazy story of getting a food truck to sell brownies, Cuban coffee and ice cream
– Some rosy times and some tough times
– Her smile and her resiliency
– The first ah-ah moment in the Luv’s Brownies journey
– A bit about her book Brownie Points: Seven Steps to Success for Woman Entrepreneurs from One Who Made It!
– The first three years of the business and running the business with her son with the last fifteen years
– Her scholarship fund
– The popular items sold by the food truck
– The thought process behind her launching new items
– Her favorite food personalities
– Making buying from her food truck an experience
– Some of her hopes for 2021
– Some products from the website
– Who is Luv?
– Her message to the audience

Black Canada Talking™ is a live online event that provides Black Canadians opportunity to give their takes and POVs on stories that are of importance to them.

Our guest on the February 21, 2021 episode of Black Canada Talking™ was Leonard Paris.

After growing up in rural Nova Scotia, Leonard Albert Paris spent forty-seven years in law enforcement, during which he often had to help people who were victimized, harassed, and treated unfairly because of their race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. This experience led him to take several courses at the University of Toronto on equity issues, diversity, inclusion, and race relations. Now retired, Leonard lives in Mississauga, Ontario, where he enjoys photography and being out in nature. Jim Crow Also Lived here is his first book.

Many people believe that racism and discrimination against those of African descent was primarily an American experience. However, this book dispels that myth by recounting Leonard Albert Paris’s first eighteen years (1948–1966), growing up as a Black youth in rural Nova Scotia, Canada, a province that was at the time, home to about 36 percent of Canada’s Black population.

Structural racism, community isolation, and generational poverty affected every aspect of his life, creating challenges and misery for him, his family, and the entire Black community—an experience that continues to affect him emotionally many decades later. While not as extreme as it was during the author’s formative years, racism and its effects continue into the present. Leonard wrote Jim Crow Also Lived Here in part to create awareness of this problem and also to inspire change.

Recently, Mr. Paris was on Black Canada Talking™ talked about Black Canada Talking™ talking about Jim Crow Also Lived Here.

During our conversation, Mr. Paris talked about:

– The importance of Black Canadians doing their family tree
– Growing up in Nova Scotia, facing racism and the lack of Black Canadian history education
– What he loved about his parents
– Being involved in the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
– Memories of the day he retired
– The story behind the book
– What makes Black Nova Scotians so special
– Memories of finishing the book and receiving the final edited copy of the book
– An interesting story about how he got the publisher for his book
– The denial and disbelief when it comes to Black Canadian history
– His message for non-melanated and Black Canadians

Aisha K. Staggers had her first major publication, an album review, in The New Haven Register while just a sophomore in high school. Another series of reviews published in The Hartford Courant followed. By the time she reached college, Aisha was writing for the literary magazine and interning at a local radio station, ABC-affiliate as a writer in the news department and in the A&R department of an independent record company.

As a graduate student at Fisk University, Aisha asked Dr. Raymond Winbush to chair her thesis because 1) he was one of the most renowned voices in black culture and academia, and 2) he was a Prince fan. His scholarship and guidance led Aisha to an early career as a professor of social sciences and later an administrator in higher education.

Aisha has also served as a director of education and policy research centers and on the staff of legislative commissions. She previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats’ Women’s Caucus, an avid campaigner and has remained active in politics and public policy.

Jill Jones is our special guest for this conversation. Ms. Jones is activist, feminist, former collaborator with Paisley Park.

During the February 5, 2021, the topics that the ladies talked about were:

– Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene removed from her House committee assignments
– 45’s allies fear the impeachment trial could be a PR nightmare
– American Covid-19 relief proposal
– President Biden does not believe that former 45 should continue to receive intelligence briefings
– This episode’s cockroach: Kevin McCarthy

Another series of reviews published in The Hartford Courant followed. By the time she reached college, Aisha was writing for the literary magazine and interning at a local radio station, ABC-affiliate as a writer in the news department and in the A&R department of an independent record company.

As a graduate student at Fisk University, Aisha asked Dr. Raymond Winbush to chair her thesis because 1) he was one of the most renowned voices in black culture and academia, and 2) he was a Prince fan. His scholarship and guidance led Aisha to an early career as a professor of social sciences and later an administrator in higher education.

Aisha has also served as a director of education and policy research centers and on the staff of legislative commissions. She previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats’ Women’s Caucus, an avid campaigner and has remained active in politics and public policy.

Black Canada Talking™ is a live online event that provides Black Canadians opportunity to give their takes and POVs on stories that are of importance to them.

During the January 17, 2021 edition of Black Canada Talking™, the guests were: Clovis and Sherron Grant.

Clovis and Sherron Grant are parents of 2 children, ages 26 & 24 years, one of whom has special needs. Sherron is a school principal in the Toronto District School Board and Clovis is the CEO of 360°kids, an organization serving homeless youth in York Region.

They founded the Black Parent Support Group in November 2020. The group was developed to support the unique needs of parents/ caregivers who are Black and raising a child with special needs. The child can be of any age and of any disability. The group’s intent is to provide a safe space for families to network, build connections, problem-solve and to reduce their isolation. The group is free to join and meets monthly, on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. For more information, contact via email or Facebook

Support, isolation, funding, resources, friends….These are the things that many families who care for someone with special needs think and worry about. For many of these families, their circle of support is quite small. This is often the case for racialized communities who have a child with special needs. The Black Parents of Children and Adults with a Disability Support Group (BPSG) was created to provide a safe space for families of African descent to come together to meet and connect, share resources, expertise and needs, inspire and support one another through our unique and often challenging and isolating journey of raising Black children or supporting a sibling, of any age, with a disability. It is a volunteer run group that meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. via Zoom. There will be guest speakers, resource sharing, support and mentorship opportunities for attendees. For more details or to register, please contact them via email. You can also find them on Facebook .

During our conversation, the Grants talked about:

– Some of their background and their giving and sharing spirit
– What is autism
– Handling their son’s (Isiah) autism over the years 
– The support that they were getting before they started their support group
– The story behind the Black Parent Support Group, its growth and memories of the first meeting
– Some of the areas that parents of the group need help with
– The impact that the pandemic has had on this community
– The future vision for the group
– Their message for the African community in regards to autism

His scholarship and guidance led Aisha to an early career as a professor of social sciences and later an administrator in higher education.

Aisha has also served as a director of education and policy research centers and on the staff of legislative commissions. She previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats’ Women’s Caucus, an avid campaigner and has remained active in politics and public policy.

Black Canada Talking™ is a live online event that provides Black Canadians opportunity to give their takes and POVs on stories that are of importance to them.

The guest on the November 22, 2020 edition of Black Canada Talking™ was Donna Paris.

Donna Paris is, among many things, an artist, an educator, a counselor, a mom, and a grandmother. She is a multigenerational African Candian, born and raised in Nova Scotia but has called Toronto home for the past 37 years. She has recently retired from a career as a teacher with the Toronto District School Board.

Donna believes that it’s important to know our history – who came before and what it cost them. She knows that in order for us to move forward in our lives and reclaim the brilliant, powerful, Black beings who came into this world, we need to tell our stories. It’s only in going back that we truly get to have our present self.

Donna is a collector of stories. She believes that black history is forged by the lives, stories, and varied experiences of Black people. Her goal is to provide a platform for Black Canadians to share their rich history. A history that is often not included in the history books or in school curriculum. She wants to hold space for Black people to share their tales of racism and discrimination, as well as the stories that demonstrate the strength and determination that helped them stand strong and claim their place in Canadian history.

Donna also believes it’s important that we be the ones telling our stories. #OurVoicesOurStories.

During our conversation, Donna talked about:

– Some of her background and going to Dalhousie University, struggling growing up with Black people and having a Black identity
– Moving from Halifax to Toronto
– Her career in teaching
– The story behind In The Black Canada and her passion for storytelling
– The first person she interviewed
– The challenge with Black Canadians sharing their stories and some stories from her journey
– A story that impacted her
– Her message about Black Canadian history to non-black and Black Canadians and her message for Black Canadians for 2021

Another series of reviews published in The Hartford Courant followed.

Aisha K. Staggers had her first major publication, an album review, in The New Haven Register while just a sophomore in high school. Another series of reviews published in The Hartford Courant followed. By the time she reached college, Aisha was writing for the literary magazine and interning at a local radio station, ABC-affiliate as a writer in the news department and in the A&R department of an independent record company.

As a graduate student at Fisk University, Aisha asked Dr. Raymond Winbush to chair her thesis because 1) he was one of the most renowned voices in black culture and academia, and 2) he was a Prince fan. His scholarship and guidance led Aisha to an early career as a professor of social sciences and later an administrator in higher education.

Aisha has also served as a director of education and policy research centers and on the staff of legislative commissions. She previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats’ Women’s Caucus, an avid campaigner and has remained active in politics and public policy.

Jill Jones is our special guest for this conversation. Ms. Jones is activist, feminist, former collaborator with Paisley Park.

On the November 19, 2020 edition of Staggers State Of Things, the ladies talked about:

Along with the vision of helping youth in every city around the world experience entrepreneurship, he is bringing years of startup expertise, award-winning youth work, marketing, advertising, and business operations.

Knight is a current contributor on CFRB NewsTalk1010 appearing each Monday morning with host Jerry Agar to address current affairs from a African and Caribbean heritage business owner perspective.

Ryan is an avid community advocate and devoted family man married to Cherriton and they have two wonderful children Jasmine and Christian.

As a graduate student at Fisk University, Aisha asked Dr. Raymond Winbush to chair her thesis because 1) he was one of the most renowned voices in black culture and academia, and 2) he was a Prince fan. His scholarship and guidance led Aisha to an early career as a professor of social sciences and later an administrator in higher education.

Aisha has also served as a director of education and policy research centers and on the staff of legislative commissions. She previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats’ Women’s Caucus, an avid campaigner and has remained active in politics and public policy.

Kenneth Braswell is the Chief Executive Officer of Fathers Incorporated, a widely recognized national and international nonprofit organization supporting fathers, practitioners, researchers, and policymakers that provides capacity building services to thousands of organizations working to ensure that fathers contribute to the healthy well-being of their children.

He brings 29 years of collective work experience managing and leading fatherhood and community programs. Additionally, he serves as the National Director of the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearing House (NRFC) directing and guiding the strategic activities of the NRFC.

Recently, Mr. Braswell was live on our show talking about the 2020 Million Fathers March Virtual Event that is being held on September 25, 2020 and The Blueprint Virtual Town Hall Forum which is being held on September 29, 2020. During the conversation, Mr. Braswell was joined by Lawrence Wilbon. Mr. Wilbon serves as the Business Development Manager for Fathers Incorporated. With over 20 years of non-profit experience, he is tasked in assisting the organization with funds development and strategic partnerships. Prior to his current position, he has served as an executive director of a local non-profit. He is married with two children and reside in the Metro Atlanta area.

The Million Fathers March (MFM) is an opportunity for dads, uncles, grandfathers, coaches, mentors, clergy, men’s groups and organizations to show their commitment to the educational lives of their children throughout the school year by escorting children to school on this day.

Fathers Incorporated presents a virtual Town Hall Forum to examine the definitions and social reality of fatherhood for Black Fathers. The event is called The Blueprint: Reimagining the Narrative of the Modern Black Father and will be streamed on September 29, 2020 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. (Eastern) across several platforms.

In the newly crafted report, Fathers Incorporated are highlighting the research shows that shows supporting responsible fatherhood is critically connected to lifting Black men and their current and/or future children out of poverty while laying a firm foundation for their success in life. We recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with innovative strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth. We simply want to address the question “WHY DOES POVERTY LOOK LIKE ME?”

During the conversation, the gentlemen talked about:

– Some of their backgrounds
– The background on The Million Fathers March including how it almost did not happen this year, planning for it and what to expect during this year’s event
– How fathers and Fathers Incorporated are handling 2020
– The story behind The Blueprint, some of the challenges that Black American fathers are facing and what to expect during the Blueprint virtual event
– How do they want to feel after these two events, their future vision for Fathers Incorporated and their message for Black fathers
– What people can do to help Fathers Incorporated

Aisha K. Staggers had her first major publication, an album review, in The New Haven Register while just a sophomore in high school. Another series of reviews published in The Hartford Courant followed. By the time she reached college, Aisha was writing for the literary magazine and interning at a local radio station, ABC-affiliate as a writer in the news department and in the A&R department of an independent record company.

As a graduate student at Fisk University, Aisha asked Dr. Raymond Winbush to chair her thesis because 1) he was one of the most renowned voices in black culture and academia, and 2) he was a Prince fan. His scholarship and guidance led Aisha to an early career as a professor of social sciences and later an administrator in higher education.

Aisha has also served as a director of education and policy research centers and on the staff of legislative commissions. She previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats’ Women’s Caucus, an avid campaigner and has remained active in politics and public policy.

Jill Jones is our special guest for this conversation. Ms. Jones is activist, feminist, former collaborator with Paisley Park.

During the August 23, 2020 edition of Staggers State Of Things, the ladies talked about:

– The recent American Democratic party convention
– Steve Bannon being arrested
– Rose McGowan
– Megan Thee Stallion
– White women’s tears being the drink of America
– Mental health in the workplace in 2020

Growing up, Sheree loved the smells and tastes of her mother’s soul food cooking. The food cooked and enjoyed by her family provided simple thrills and delicious memories. The thought of tasting the unfamiliar was not appealing and the comfort zone created since being a child seemed to be as good as it gets. That all changed over the years starting with college and later into her adult life when she began to discover and explore a whole new world and relationship with food.

Today, she is writing about her delicious relationship as the publisher of Cuisine Noir, the country’s first Black online and print food, wine and travel magazine. Re-launched online in September 2009 and debuting in print in September 2011 (2011 – 2017) under her company V. Sheree Creative Enterprises, Cuisine Noir is a lifestyle publication centered on connecting the African diaspora through food, wine and travel.

Designing a niche publication was an easy fit for Sheree who is also a multicultural marketing consultant. She knew that such a publication was not only needed but will be widely received by all. And it has. It would also provide a clear and distinct media outlet for advertisers executing multicultural campaigns geared toward Blacks with a food, health, wine/spirits and travel focus. Sheree’s leadership has successfully started a new cultural culinary movement by putting Black chefs, culinary professionals and vintners in the forefront to showcase their talents and contributions to foodies, media and key industry companies.

She has interviewed some of the most talented chefs across the country as well as celebrities such as Chef Govind Armstrong, Chef Carla Hall, the late Dr. Maya Angelou, George Duke, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Chef Roger Mooking, Niecy Nash, Russell Simmons, Grace Hightower DeNiro and Charlie Wilson.

In addition to writing about the chefs behind the food, she was produced and organized cooking demonstrations with a variety of celebrity chefs such as Chef Jeff Henderson (The Food Network), Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr. (The Food Network), Chef Tre Wilcox (Bravo’s Top Chef), Chef Darrell “DAS” Smith (The Food Network), Chef G. Garvin (The Cooking Channel), Chef Kevin Sbraga (Bravo’s Top Chef), Chef Bryant Terry (Author – Vegan Soul Kitchen), Chef Rock Harper (Winner of Hell’s Kitchen Season 3) and Chef Nikki Shaw (The Food Network). Event culinary programming clients include United Negro College Fund, Bay Area Black Expo and The Network for a Healthier California. From 2011- 2015, she was the stage manager for Unicomm’s Travel and Adventure Show’s Taste of Travel stage that traveled to seven cities and worked with local and celebrity chefs as well as restaurants and destinations around the world.

She was a sofi Awards judge for the Specialty Food Association and was also recognized by Dine Diaspora as one of 31 Women in Food to know during Women’s History Month in 2019. In 2020, she was among 26 Black and White women participating in the #sharethemicfoodandbev campaign created to amplify the voices of Black women in these industries.

Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, Sheree holds a Bachelor of Science in Advertising from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Master of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications with a Concentration in Public Relations from Golden Gate University in San Francisco. She currently lives in Oakland, Calif., and enjoys trying new restaurants, cooking, gardening, traveling, hiking, relaxing on the beach and food and travel photography.

Recently, V. Sheree was on our show talking about Cuisine Noir Magazine.

During our conversation, V. Sheree talked about:

– Life growing up in Chicago and how she ended up living in California in 1998
– The story behind Cuisine Noir, taking ownership of the magazine in December 2008, the early days of the magazine and some memories

Grace JerkFest was presented by TD Ready Commitment and went virtual this year due to COVID-19. The food, music and fun times was live streamed on www.jerkfestival.ca on August 8th and August 9th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. each night. There was no cost, everyone was invited and saw jerk cooking demonstrations, Canadian dancers, singers, steelpan artists as well as the international headliners: Beenie Man, Jah Cure, Lila Ike and Alison Hinds.

We had the opportunity to speak with Jah Cure before this year’s Grace JerkFest.

You may know him as Jah Cure. Perhaps you know him by his given name, Siccaturie Alcock. But as the saying goes, “What’s in a name?” Most importantly, you must know his message. His music is at once his spirit, his all-consuming passion, and his personal declaration of a belief in a universal consciousness based on love and positivity.

Born in Hanover, Jamaica on October 11th, 1978, the global force that is Jah Cure has been a long time in the making. From as little as three years old, this child of slight build would captivate those around him with his innate musical virtuosity. As he and his love for the art grew, the young man whose voice would make any songbird green with envy would sneak out of his bedroom window late at night to visit local dancehalls and stage shows. It was here that he became immersed in the stylings of the undisputed greats: Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, Beres Hammond, Marcia Griffith, Garnett Silk, Yami Bolo, Jacob Miller and Black Uhuru. A young Siccaturie knew that he would dedicate himself to achieving membership of this superlative group.

Initially using the name ‘Little Melody’, Siccaturie’s voice started to leave an indelible impression in the streets and he soon became the talk of Jamaica. At the age of fifteen, he moved to Kingston. The name Jah Cure was bestowed upon him by the world-renowned Capleton and the David House Crew. This was primarily due to the vast amount of herb he smoked in the quest for spiritual enlightenment – a daily custom of his Rastafarian religion and commitment to natural living. Using the plants of the land for medicinal purposes, the singer looked young and healthy. He was ‘well-preserved’ or ‘cured’. Jamaican music icon, Beres Hammond, subsequently took Cure under his wing and became his mentor and producer.

However, Cure’s journey would be unexpectedly interrupted when in 1998 he was stopped and arrested late one night in Montego Bay. He was charged with four crimes, all of which he vehemently denies to this day. A non-jury trial was convened (one in which a single judge decides both questions of law and fact) and unfortunately, despite a total lack of visual confirmation of his involvement in said crimes, Cure was given a 15 year sentence.Not letting this setback disrupt his dream, Cure recorded and released many #1 singles from jail. The songs “Jamaica” and “Longing For” were both local and global successes. Cure’s first album, FREE JAH’S CURE, was recorded and released in 2001. On this project, Cure conveys his gratitude for life. He believes his incarceration was Jah’s way of teaching him humility, kindness, forgiveness and love for his fellow man. Consequently, he has relinquished any resentment for those who judged him unjustly. In 2003, Beres Hammond produced Cure’s second album, GHETTO LIFE, which featured the acclaimed single Divide and Rule.

On his first day of freedom, Cure publicly stated that his only remaining life goal would be to use his music as a means of spreading love, peace and healing. Since 2007, Jah Cure has topped the charts with several # 1 singles – Call on Me, featuring Phyllisia, followed by You’ll Never Find, and Unconditional Love, which quickly became the #1 reggae single worldwide. The song Like I See It, featuring Rick Ross, and the remix with dancehall king Mavado, undeniably rocked the international reggae scene. Released in 2013, the album WORLD CRY featured collaborations with the talents of Tupac, Keri Hilson, Mavado, MDMA, Rick Ross, Jazmine Sullivan, Shyne and several others. It can confidently be described as an auditory explosion that crossed and entwined the genres of reggae, hip hop, R&B, Latin and pop.

During our conversation, Jah Cure talked about:

– Some of his background including growing up in jungle in Jamaica
– The influence his grandmother has had on his life
– How music found him and singing the song that won his first singing competition when he was a young boy

How She Hustles, with proud sponsors CIBC and exclusive media partner, Rogers Sports & Media, is excited to produce the second annual Startup & Slay Digital Series featuring Canada’s diverse women entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs profiled in this series will share inspiring stories about starting, sustaining and scaling their small businesses, despite uncertain economic times.

The entrepreneurs will be featured in weekly video chats and publicity campaign during October’s Small Business Month 2020. We welcome applications from non-binary entrepreneurs while we work on a more gender inclusive framework for How She Hustles.

The application process is underway to select Canadian women entrepreneurs who are soaring in this year of uncertainty. “These are turbulent times with both the COVID-19 pandemic and the acknowledgement of the toll racism has taken on communities of colour – particularly in the areas of business and simply trying to make a living,” said Emily Mills, founder of How She Hustles/Startup & Slay. “With this digital series we are hoping to change how we perceive entrepreneurs in this country and broaden that definition so more people can see themselves reflected.”

The national call out is to self-identified women entrepreneurs from diverse and underrepresented communities to share their stories of starting and scaling a small business in Canada. How She Hustles welcomes applications from non-binary entrepreneurs while working on a more gender inclusive framework.

Many businesses have had to pivot and change their game-plan to adjust to the current economic climate, social distancing rules and doing business virtually. We want to hear how women-led businesses have been able to keep afloat and, in some cases, increase their productivity during the pandemic. The selected entrepreneurs will be featured in weekly live streamed video chats during October’s Small Business Month. Applicants have until July 31, 2020 to share their story here.

Last year, Startup & Slay evolved into a national digital video series. Out of more than 100 applicants from five difference provinces and 30 different communities, six Canadian businesses were selected to share their journey on camera. They were also provided opportunities to share their stories with media outlets and at panel and networking events in Toronto during Small Business Week.

Desmond Williams is a career teacher, principal, author and thought leader. He is driven to help all children live their dreams. Desmond had two dreams growing up: He wanted to design Transformers and be a sitcom writer. After having many teachers tell him those dreams were silly, he decided he wanted to teach because he knew children deserved better. He has spent his entire professional career working with youth serving as a special educator, classroom teacher, assistant principal and principal. His educational philosophy is simply that education should be used for the process of building and maintaining a nation.

He received his Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Howard University in Washington, DC. He later received his master’s degree in Education and Human Development from George Washington University. He started his teaching career in DCPS as a special educator. He subsequently moved through the ranks and became a special education coordinator because of his business acumen and understanding of children with special needs. Soon afterwards Mr. Williams, worked in the Office of Special Education for DC Public Schools.

After leaving DCPS’s Office of Special Education, he ventured into the world of school-based administration. His expertise includes, student engagement, restorative justice, relationship building with students, and family engagement. Desmond has spoken at multiple conferences across the country offering his expertise and insight in engaging inner-city students. He has worked with several independent schools and school districts. His focus is on educating boys of color. “They are the most marginalized and are in need of the most help. “Teachers that serve them, tend to be the teachers that are in need of the most support.” His other passions include teacher development, leadership development, special education and engaging boys of color in learning. In 2015, he launched the #SOBTC Twitter chat that united teachers, educators, parents and practitioners from across the country to discuss issues related to educating boys of color. #SOBTC, Send Our Boys To College started because he wanted those invested in the growth of Black boys to have a platform to discuss challenges and celebrate successes.

Desmond served six years at an all-boys school in Washington DC, teaching four years and serving as principal for two more years. His first year as an administrator reading scores soared to 64% proficient. In his second year, and upon his departure, The Bishop Walker School boasted reading scores of 83% proficiency. After leaving BWS, Desmond founded and launched Nylinka School Solutions. One of Desmond’s big goals was to help other educators increase the level of engagement and investment of boys of color. Mr. Williams does this by leveraging his experience and expertise to aid schools and school districts. The goal of Nylinka School Solutions is to help children achieve their dreams one solution at a time. In all, Desmond has spent nine years as a teacher and seven as an administrator. However, his greatest satisfaction is seeing kids maintain their enthusiasm for leaving their mark on the world. He has recently ventured into the world of writing. His first book The Burning House: Educating Black Boys in Modern America was released in February of 2020 and debuted as a #1 New Release. In the fall of 2020, Desmond will return to Howard University to pursue his PhD in Educational Psychology.

Recently, Mr. Williams was a guest on Black Men Talking™ … A Digital Journey About The Lives Of Black Men ….

During our conversation, Mr. Williams talked about:

– Some of his story including growing up in Detroit, how attending the Million Man March on October 16, 1995 in Washington changed his life
– What he thanks his parents for
– Deciding to go to Howard University and his experience attending there
– Making teaching his journey and graduating from his masters program with zero debt

Aisha K. Staggers had her first major publication, an album review, in The New Haven Register while just a sophomore in high school. Another series of reviews published in The Hartford Courant followed. By the time she reached college, Aisha was writing for the literary magazine and interning at a local radio station, ABC-affiliate as a writer in the news department and in the A&R department of an independent record company.

As a graduate student at Fisk University, Aisha asked Dr. Raymond Winbush to chair her thesis because 1) he was one of the most renowned voices in black culture and academia, and 2) he was a Prince fan. His scholarship and guidance led Aisha to an early career as a professor of social sciences and later an administrator in higher education.

Aisha has also served as a director of education and policy research centers and on the staff of legislative commissions. She previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats’ Women’s Caucus, an avid campaigner and has remained active in politics and public policy.

Jill Jones is our special guest for this conversation. Ms. Jones is activist, feminist, former collaborator with Paisley Park.

On the July, 11, 2020, the subjects that ladies talked about were:

– 45 commutes Roger Stone’s prison sentence
– In America, Covid cases and deaths going up and the future of opening of schools
– American Supreme Court allows NY access to 45’s taxes, blocks House
– According to the new guidelines issued by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the government will stop issuing visas for students planning to pursue online-only courses starting in September, while those already in the U.S. will need to transfer to institutions that still conduct in-person classes or leave the country altogether

Candies Kotchapaw is a community builder and networker, holding Master and Bachelor degrees in Social Work from York University and a diploma in Child and Youth Work from George Brown College. While completing the Master program, Candies encountered systemic conditions that tried to prevent her from successfully completing the program. These forces included feelings of isolation in education, financial blocks, lack of mentorship and a sense that striving for greater was pointless. Candies found support in one faculty member who invested time and effort in developing her Major Research Project entitled, ‘The Politics of Social Work: Do Racialized Social Workers belong in the Practice Space of Public Policy Development?’

From this Major Research Paper, in 2016 Candies was invited to present her findings at graduate student conferences at York University at the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies, The Global Labour Research Centre and the School of Social Work’s graduate symposium. Further, Candies was a panel presenter in Seattle, Washington at the Institute for Research on Labour and Employment (IRLE). As the only black female presenter at this conference, Candies began to interrogate how to make spaces of influence in education and the broader society more accessible for the black community. It was here that the idea of creating a program that combined mentorship with capacity building began to develop. Following completion of the Master of Social Work program, Candies founded the project called Developing Young Leaders of Tomorrow, Today (DYLOTT).

This program serves the purpose of connecting participants of the program with strong mentors within the black community and non-racialized allies who have been successful at navigating systemic structures and creating access to available opportunities for marginalized people. As DYLOTT continues to evolve into a unique leadership skills development program, Candies continues to inform the program through her research into precarious work and its effects specifically on the black community. Candies has travelled to the United Kingdom, Latvia and South Korea to present her findings on precarious work to further structure DYLOTT to open career paths for the black community that has been otherwise inaccessible.

Candies is always willing to talk about her experiences and the necessity of supporting a unique program such as DYLOTT.

Recently, Ms. Kotchapaw was on our show.

During our conversation, Ms. Kotchapaw talked about:

– Some her background including why she decided to pursue social work as her passion
– The importance of her family in her journey
– The qualities of her mother that she has in her
– Some of her professional accomplishments including achieving her MSW and the some of the challenges that Black Canadians face with the social service system
– The story behind DYLOTT
– The importance Senator Wanda Bernard has had on her journey
– Some DYLOTT successes
– The effect that Covid19 is having on Black Toronto youth
– Ter finding out that she is resilient and future vision
– Some of her recent awards
