If you went to an HBCU, check out the Amazing Journeys show (New Orleans) on your Roundup page

Peace Beautiful and Powerful People,

Most of you all are plugged into your Round Up websites (i.e. Bison Roundup, Jaguar Roundup, etc…). I didn’t realize it initially but most of the round up sites for the major HBCUs were created by my boy Bryndan and his brother, another Howard grad.

Anyway, they’ve produced this dope series called Amazing Journeys, which documents the history and culture of three cities – Detroit, Chicago, and New Orleans.

Needless to say, the shows are great and very informative! I was also one of the individuals interviewed during their visit to New Orleans (New Orleans pt. 2, the show that’s being aired now).

So, when you get a minute, please check out the show on your round up page, and definitely look at the entire series. It will be worth your while.

Beyond shamelessly plugging myself and the museum, I’m forced to reflect on a much grander picture and the true nature of my life’s purpose.The plight of the HBCU is near and dear to my heart. Going to Howard was definitely the best adolescent decision I ever made. It keeps in line with a family tradition…my great-grandfather graduated from Tuskegee and taught for many years at Southern.

Amazing Journeys: Chicago (Part 1)

Chicago was the second stop on our AMAZING Journey series of road trips in the Mighty Ford Flex. Why Mighty? Because we left Detroit in a light snow storm, and by the time we hit Indiana we were in a BLIZZARD, and completely snow blinded. It was actually pretty stressful. On top of the weather one of our crew lives in Florida and was COMPLETELY bugging out in the back seat! LOL! We still love you DB.

After a moment of clarity, we pulled over gathered our wits, scraped the windows, and successfully pushed through the night to the Windy City.
