On Ep. 34 of LexxxTalkAboutIt Alexis J & Jay sit down with 19-year-old cofounder of Young Black Motivated Kings and Queens, Tamia Coleman. Tamia talks about how YBMKQ got started as a non-profit organization that focuses on community services and inspiring the youth throughout the city of Pittsburgh. She also talks about YBMKQ’s upcoming 3rd annual Black Tie event in which the group will be releasing a new book titled “Younger Black Pittsburgh.” Tamia talks about what motivated her to want to rally the youth in the Burgh and how the support from mentors and other non-profits has helped them grow over the last several years.
Plus we ask:
- How does Tamia and her cofounder Khalil Darden inspire other youth to join their movement?
- Did the Beyhive take it too far when they attacked the wife of the Warrior’s owner?
- How hard was it to watch Ava Duvernay’s Netflix series “When They See Us?”
Let’s Talk About It!
