We learn about Paul Williams, known as Hollywood’s Architect. An astounding feat for a Black man who was told he would never make it because of the color of his skin. We introduce you to Ashley Rockwood of Free Mvmt Shop, a workout that’s focused on self-expression through movement based on community connection. And we step into the lab of Herb N' Eden Holistic Skincare Company with owners Quintin and Terran Lewis, producers of natural skin-care products.
This week on America’s Black Forum: We discuss racial bias in home appraisals where the home appraisal system has consistently undervalued homes in African-American neighborhoods...costing black home owners on average about $46-thousand dollars in lost value. We meet Raquel Graham, entrepreneur and visionary of ROQ Innovation. Her product innovation company develops problem-solving solutions that aim to make life a little easier. We speak with ornithologist Corina Newsome, a co-organizer of the inaugural Black Birders Week, who is challenging stereotypes about Black Americans and their interest in bird watching and nature exploration.
