Black Victim to Black Victor

Adam B. Coleman is a relatively soft-spoken guy.  But he has a lot to say.  It’s the WAY he says things that makes him so easy to listen to and so easy to like.  The second edition of his book, “Black Victim to Black Victor,” is now available.  His reasons for writing in the first place are admirable and aspirational.  It’s always a pleasure to spend a little time with the man who says he is “Speaking Wrong at the Right Time.” https://twitter.com/wrong_speak?lang=en  https://www.adambcoleman.com/  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

A Gay Black Man who was Changed by the Brett Kavanaugh Hearings

Byl Holte (pronounced “Bill Holt”) is many things.  He is Black.  He is gay.  He is Patti LaBelle’s adopted son/nephew.  And he has a significant following on X.  But he has been largely isolated from his family and friends because of (wait for it)… politics. That hasn’t stopped him from expressing his opinions about feminism, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden’s America.  This is his first-ever on-camera interview.  Oh — and he was at the Capitol on January 6th. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
