For generations, Black people have been told they have what is now said to be more than one trillion dollars of “buying power,” reading Dr. Ball’s work, we come to see that is a flat-out lie. In Chapter 4 Dr. Ball writes “today’s leading purveyors of the myth itself are the Black commercial press whose goals in this regard remain the same; promote a false Black economic reality to secure revenue.” WHEW!!! You do not want to miss this episode.
The Host - Elgin Bailey

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.”
