This season, we’re reading “Myth and Propaganda of Black Buying Power”, by Dr. Jared A. Ball. This episode explores chapter 6 which is called “Freedom Was the Call but ‘Instead, They Got Bank'”.
The Host - Elgin Bailey
Through speaking, protesting, organizing, and intentionally curating prophetic spaces, calling truth to power, Elgin is one of the founding members of the Robert Chadwick Group, in honor of his brother “Chad”. After years of serving his community, Elgin decided to pursue higher education, and is currently obtaining the first of many degrees in behavioral mental health counseling, and psychology.
Currently as a prevention specialist, specializing in drugs/alcohol in the homeless community, Elgin is a proud husband, father of 4 beautiful daughters, a podcaster, a “dabbler” in the culinary arts, a speaker, a friend, and committed to the well-being of the Black collective. Elgin lives by the mantra of the famous Frederick Douglas quote stating “without struggle, there is no progress.”
