Life in it’s Rawest Form with Qiana Hicks

Qiana Hicks is a mother, a college graduate, a career professional, and an author. I was born in Gary, Indiana, and raised in a single-parent home, for the most part. Her parents were drug and alcohol addicts, and her father spent most of his youth in prison. Ms. Hicks grew up living with an older brother and a younger sister. 

Ms.Hicks’ MISSION IS TO HELP OTHERS WHO ARE DEALING WITH SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCES – Coming from a single parent, disadvantaged household, she can relate to others who live in those conditions. She can also relate to growing up in an impoverished environment, where resources are scarce. All the while, she dreamed of one day having a better life. She became a mother at an early age, and most people had already counted me out as never becoming a contributing member of society. If her past experiences and how she applied them to making a better life for her son and her can inspire and motivate others, she believe her book can help you on your mission for helping others.

Ep. 23 – The Importance of Organizing Black Males👨🏾‍🏭🕵🏾👨🏾‍⚕️

On this episode, I discussed the importance of black male leadership. It is not been a secret that black males have been disorganized for quite some time. However, two recent events happened that gave me hope that black males can get it together and organized to push a constructive agenda for Black people. The first example was that the NBA All-Star game with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook being supported by their teammates. The second was popular YouTubers  The Angryman Channel, Obsidian Media Network, and Oshay Jackson came together to squash their beef. In order for black people to move forward in the United States, Black males need to be organized around constructive efforts.
