Urban Speaks- Tuesdays at 2:30pm-3:00pm
Urban Speaks is a program supported in partnership between the Urban League of Greater New Orleans and Capital One. Urban Speaks is designed to elevate the inequities and solutions that exists for Blacks in New Orleans. We are joined on the show by leaders from various industries (criminal justice, housing, health, civic engagement, economic and workforce development, education, and environment) to discuss current systemic inequities and provide both solutions and ways for the community to engage in creating solutions to the inequities. We provide data and information from the Urban League’s State of Black New Orleans publication and provide personal background information on all of our guest speakers. Urban Speaks seeks to provide our community with an outlined problem, relevant data that supports the problem statement, and solutions to the problems. More than anything, Urban Speaks challenges and awakens the consciousness of our community, while also providing them with ways to engage in the creations of solutions toward progress. As we always sign off, our community needs to GET WOKE and STAY WOKE!
