SB 30 Episode 5: Finding Success as an African American Male, with Lakethen Mason of the Win Sum Agency

“…these kids are in the worst of circumstances in their neighborhoods … and owning your personal brand is about making sure that you own your life mirror and the love that you feel and not be distracted by the self-hate or the doubts of others, because that is the only way that you make it through this turbulent environment.”

When Lakethen and I sat down for our talk on WYPL FM 89.3, he had recently wrapped up his Maximizing Manhood Symposium at the Halloran Center, in which 37 panelists shared their journeys to success as African American men in Memphis. He shared his thoughts on the Symposium, and more, in our talk this week.

Sharing is caring!

About Mark Fleischer 84 Articles
I was a career consultant and communications specialist in the payroll industry until moving from southern California to Memphis in late 2015. The Bluff City gave me a new start in the second half of my career, gifting me with a chance to return to my childhood fascinations with cities and my college passions in writing, theater, film, and storytelling, all the while allowing me to use my experience working with people, in consulting, teaching and communications, to bring a new voice to Memphis. This may be my first venture into multi-media publishing, but Life and Place - Memphis - gave me all the prep and tools I need.
