Once upon a time, there was young Jamaican American girl from Manhattan who traveled all the way to University Park, Pennsylvania to meet the love of her life (a native Hollis, Queens resident). Where does the story go from here? Currently, the book is still being written. For the thirteen plus years shared together they have each accomplished quite a bit for a couple in their thirties.

A licensed attorney by trade, Natasha held various stints in the corporate world prior to making a foray into fashion and writing. Having been a victim of bullying as a child growing up, Natasha learned to seek out fashion as a source of strength early on and actively uses it as a personal means of empowerment; because of her own experiences with bullying and her strong desire to help others within the plus size community, Natasha started Dressing Room 8 to provide a web-based resource where women can gain personal and professional empowerment through her fashion and lifestyle focused blog, consultation and coaching services. Dressing Room 8 helps women how to think with clarity, dress with confidence, and live with purpose.

Kahlil Nurse is an Electrical Engineer who wears many different hats (just like his wife). He is the Tech Guru for too many people to mention (which his friends and family can totally attest to). He has been the technical support for Dressing Room 8 and Sistas On Fire. As a fan of cars, technology and finance, he embraces opportunities to learn, grow, and enjoy his hobbies to the fullest.

In September 2017, they decided to share their marriage and thoughts to media with their exciting new podcast WokeNFree where they talk about relationships, education, religion, politics, music, history, fashion, diversity in the media, entertainment, empowerment matters, life hacks, technology, cultural disparities in the world, and everything in between. You can listen to a new WokeNFree episode every Wednesday for #WokeNFreeWednesday.

Recently, Kahlil and Natasha were on our show talking about WokeNFree podcast.

During our conversation, they talked about:

– Their thoughts about the Black Panther movie
– Some of Natasha’s and Kahlil’s story including how they met
– The values that their parents instilled in them when they were growing up
– How did the WokeNFree podcast start and the work it takes to make a WokeNFree episode happen
– Some show highlights, some topics that are coming up on the show and some dream guests that they would like to have on the show
– Their message for Blacks who would like to become content creators
– Words of wisdom for Black couples who would like to work together

Emille M. Bryant is the author of Start With A Sparkle and the innovator of Brazen Creativity. As an author and innovator, Emille tirelessly seeks ways to share his insight into leadership, motivation, self-development and creativity. He is a passionate advocate of independent thinking and believes America’s edge in business, conflict resolution, military engagement and humanitarian endeavors is in its ability to draw on multiple perspectives and points of view at will. His engagement requires a level of in-depth thinking and willingness to confront personal and collective fears that unlock the power of an individual and organization.

Emille is a natural problem solver. While in the Air Force, he had to see beyond the problems presented by a lack of resources, austere locations and must-do mission. Daily, he was surrounded by Airmen, both young and old, whose dedication and professionalism were his greatest assets. By listening, learning and then sharing his insight, he led multiple teams to amazing success, turning around two organizations that were headed down the wrong path. When faced with a chance to solve problems while deployed, Emille led his teams to unprecedented success, breaking records in the number of missions supported and the reliability of the aircraft entrusted to his care.

During his military career, Emille was stationed at six locations between the US, Portugal and Japan, settling in the Washington DC area after his retirement from active duty in 2012. Pope Air Force Base, NC, where both of his children were born (1994 – 1998), Maxwell Air Force Base, AL (1998 – 2001), Lajes Field, Azores (2001 – 2003), Yokota Air Base, Japan (2003 – 2005), Dyess Air Force Base, TX (2006 – 2008) and Andrews Air Force Base, MD (2008 – Present). He has deployed to southwest Asia in support of ongoing operations as well as numerous countries in Asia, Africa and Europe.

Sparked by a desire to share the wisdom he gained over 24 years in uniform, Emille released his first book, entitled Start With A Sparkle, in September 2014 which transformed his life. Writing fulfilled the first element of his powerful vision to share the concept of IKIGAI—a Japanese word that translates to “the reason why you wake up each morning”. This powerful concept changed the trajectory of every aspect of his life. Focusing on IKIGAI unlocked Emille’s creative potential, especially while working to build the small business that employed him at the time. Because that position was open to innovation, Emille flourished. Combining his military experience and logistics prowess with focused team-building and communication, Emille helped build a Center of Excellence from the ground up.

While working in corporate America, Emille traveled the United States to launch his book. He shared it on a nationwide tour going from Seattle to Atlanta, eight cities in total, speaking in libraries, cafes and classrooms. From that experience, he learned that a book was not enough…people were clamoring for interactive content and something they could access on the web. After speaking with hundreds of people from all across America, Emille saw the need to help people express both their IKIGAI and their creativity. Thus was born his latest project, Awaken to Brazen Creativity. Brazen Creativity is a lifestyle that emphasizes no adult needs any human being’s permission be their best self and that being one’s best leads to original thought and unmatched innovation. Awaken to Brazen Creativity is the first salvo in an ongoing effort to highlight the power of IKIGAI in creativity, it will encourage the learner to shed the restrictions offered by society, family and social convention that prevent each of us from tapping into and offering our best ideas on behalf of our work, home and financial endeavors.

After serving for many years in government and corporate America, Emille made a decision to harness his expertise to build Emille Bryant Presents, his newest business venture highlighting his work as an author, speaker and innovator. For more information on his published work, Start With A Sparkle, or his latest web series, Awaken to Brazen Creativity, visit www.emillebryantpresents.com.

Recently, Mr. Bryant was live on our show talking about The Self-Directed Life, It’s Definition And Influences.

During our conversation, Mr. Bryant talked about:

– Life growing up in Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington and what his parents taught him
– Growing up with an insatiable curiosity and where it has taken him
– Having two families that absolutely loved him and where did he learn about empathy
– Why did he get involved in the military
– Graduating from high school with two full scholarships worth $350,000 in 1988
– “You should never ask someone to go to their school.”
– The definition of the self-directed life, how he entered the self-directed life and what it is all about
– The lack of thinking in America and the importance of reflection
– Common barriers that people encounter when they are trying to reach a self-directed life and society gets in the way of someone achieving a self-directed life
– His first big win when he started leading a self-directed life
– Some of the wins one will get when they start leading a self-directed life

Robin Koerner is a political and economic commentator for the Huffington Post, Independent Voter Network, and other outlets. He holds graduate degrees in both Physics and the Philosophy of Science from the University of Cambridge (U.K.). He is British born, and recently became a citizen of the USA. A decade ago, he founded WatchingAmerica.com, an organization of over 200 volunteers that translates and posts in English views about the USA from all over the world.

Robin may be best known for having coined the term “Blue Republican” to refer to liberals and independents who joined the GOP to support Ron Paul’s bid for the presidency in 2012 (and, in so doing, launching the largest coalition that existed for that candidate).

Robin’s current work as the author of the book If You Can Keep It and as a trainer and a consultant focuses on bringing people together across political divisions, with a view to winning supporters for good causes, rather than just arguments. He is driven by the conviction that more unites us as people and as Americans than divides us as partisans, and if we can find common ground and understand the forces that really drive political change, then “We the People” will be able to do what the Founders implored us to do – maintain our natural rights against power and its abuse. As he says, people and their well-being are the only legitimate ends of politics.

Recently, Mr. Koerner was on our show talking about his article The Cure for Toxic Masculinity Is Real Masculinity.

During our conversation, Mr. Koerner talked about:

– Some of his background including being born in England, his education
– His desire to pursue education and desire to become an American and the process he went through to become an American citizen
– The fact it is becoming harder for men to be men and for men to be masculine
– How the term “toxic masculinity” should not be used
– What women have told him about their experiences with some men and the effects of this behaviour has had on boys
– Holding the feminine and truly masculine sacred

While Aisha enjoys writing about music, she feels the most critical discussions we can have today are centered around race and intersectionality because “you can’t fix a problem you don’t acknowledge, and not acknowledging the plight of women of color and specifically Black women is a problem.”

Tomika Anderson

Tomika Anderson is an award-winning content creator, communications director, lifelong traveller with passport stamps from five continents, longtime, proven champion of women and children and a lioness mom to Solomon, my adorable four-year-old son. Having worked with everyone from Beyoncé to Serena Williams, I’ve learned from the best and sought to share that knowledge as a communications strategy consultant. I’m on a journey to empower moms from all walks of life to design a life they’re proud of, and one that supports their children to no end.

Ms. Anderson and Stephanie Sampson have created the Motivated Mamas Mastermind.

The Motivated Mamas Mastermind is a 90-day sprint cycle that provides a safe, virtual, supportive space for single moms of all backgrounds.

The purpose? To share expertise, hacks, best practices and problem solve on anything and everything holding you back, whether that’s having to navigate the child support system, a need to boost your credit score, a push toward launching your successful business or securing that corner office. Or maybe it’s losing that stubborn “baby weight” and getting back out there on the dating scene so you can meet someone compatible.

The not-so-secret weapon? Accountability. In case you didn’t know, accountability partners are crucial to getting a promotion at work, mastering a new trade, finding a sponsor for your conference or replacing that soul-sucking job … and so much more.

Recently, Ms. Anderson was on our show talking about the Motivated Mamas Mastermind.

During our conversation, Ms. Anderson talked about:

– How has life being a military brat impacted her
– What influenced her to get into the world of journalism and some of her career highlights

Brad Sanders is a comedian, actor and writer best known for the radio soap opera It’s Your World and the Clarence Update of CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful, for which he has received two Daytime Emmy Award nominations as writer/performer in the category of New Approaches in Daytime Entertainment. Millions of daytime television viewers recognize Sanders as “Clarence,” a cool, well-dressed character with an extensive hat collection, who provides a streetwise summary of the soap opera’s highlights each week.

Sanders, a Chicago native, attended Columbia College where he majored in television and radio production. After college, he moved to Los Angeles to further his career. Sanders is the owner and president of Babysitters Productions, the company he founded in 1989, which currently produces the Clarence Update and another online feature, An Inside Look at the News Inside the News, a news/comedy segment. Babysitters Productions has also created and syndicated radio programs including: On the Phone with Ti-Rone, in which Ti-Rone answers listener’s letters and phone calls with a little common sense advice; Gospel Ti-Rone, which focuses on the importance of having a personal relationship with God in handling life’s problems; What’s Poppin,’ a hip-hop dramedy; and It’s Your World, a fully produced short-form radio soap opera which aired daily on the Tom Joyner Morning Show for over 16 years. Co-created with comedian Myra Jay, It’s Your World showcased Sanders’ writing and production talents and was a national hit.

Comedy is where it all began. He decided to become a comedian for three reasons—he always enjoyed making people laugh, he loved the nightlife, plus “if you’re in show business, you get to go backstage.” While enjoying a career that spans television, radio, film and personal appearances, he continues to hone his skills in sketch writing, acting and voiceover classes, in addition to developing spec scripts for television sitcoms.

His ability to connect with audiences transcends the entertainment industry and has touched the lives of millions. In 2003, after 20 years of responding to thousands of letters, phone calls and emails from abused and discouraged women, he, along with media personality Deya Smith, co-founded Be Good to Women Day, an annual prayer vigil and community forum designed to honor women while addressing their safety and health issues. The national event is held in March during Women’s History Month. “The most important reason for honoring women,” says Sanders, “is that women are essential to the wellbeing of humanity. Women provide love. Nobody loves like a woman.”

Sanders believes his purpose as an entertainer is to provide laughter for people who need a break from the stresses of everyday life. “You can’t stay angry and laugh at the same time. Laughter can make your problems seem smaller. Sometimes, a good laugh can inspire hope.” He currently resides in Fayetteville, GA with his wife, the Reverend Joan Sanders. They have one daughter, Sadia Shamim Sanders, and are members of Flipper Chapel AME Church. They are also members of the Bryant Temple AME Church and Emmanuel-Turner AME Church families in Los Angeles, CA.

Recently, Mr. Sanders was on our show. During our conversation, Mr. Sanders talked about:

– Life growing up in Chicago
– His first big break in entertainment and some great stories
– how has the entertainment industry changed during his journey
– What he is working on

Omowale Afrika, husband to LaToya, and father to Naima and Khairi, was born and raised in North Philadelphia. He attended William Penn High School, and was a graduate of the class of 2001. Shortly after graduating, he enrolled in the Philadelphia Diversity Apprenticeship Program to pursue a career in carpentry. Although the building trades did not provide the opportunity promised by the program, Omowale eventually began to volunteer his time with Men United for a Better Philadelphia, as a community organizer, and advocate against gun violence. His work with Men United led to an opportunity to partner with the School District of Philadelphia during the 2005-2006 school year, and subsequent employment with the City of Philadelphia’s – Adolescence Violence Reduction Program.

Omowale would go on to enroll in Northampton Community College in the Summer of 2008, and after obtaining an Associates of Arts in Business Administration, he transferred to Lehigh University, where he earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Business & Economics. Although professionally trained as a CPA, his education has always come from the wealth of walking libraries within the Black community. It is the latter type of experiential learning, that led him to service within the United Negro Improvement
Association (UNIA), where he served as the Division President at the International Head Quarters of the association.

In addition to his work as a community organizer, Omowale is also an essayist, and is currently penning his first book in an effort to raise the political consciousness of his generation. In this regard, Omowale considers his work to be an extension of the tradition started by Martin Robinson Delaney, but can also be found in the writings of Marcus Garvey, Harold Cruse, and other nationalist scholars whose production of educational content was largely outside of the academy.

Mr. Afrika was live on our show talking about his article White America’s Dirty Secret: The Fear of Black Manhood and Why We Lynch ‘Bad Niggers’.

During our conversation, Mr. Afrika talked about:

– Some of his background including one of the poorest zip code in Philadelphia
– The gift that his father gave him
– The background behind the article and his love of Black history
– How slavery removed the identity of Black men
– Black men and emasculation
– “The Black men is a fully depreciated asset.”
– What is Black manhood
– White supremacy … can Black win this battle on their own?
– What does being a Black man today mean?
– What does the Black man need to work on
– Why are Black people spiritually dead
