S5E4: Our Responsibility to Community, with Nana Boakye.

“We need to build community like our life depends on it.” 

We are joined today by awe-inspiring Nana Boakye; local philantropist and community builder from Ghana to Boulder. Nana chanelled his passion for soccer into “Kick2Build” community organization, and in this episode we hear how and why he created this inclusive community, and how diversity is celebrated using sports and cultural arts.  

Listen to hear us talk about:

  • Community building as a long term responsibility  

  • Race and intersectionality

  • Capitalism & white supremacy culture 

  • ‘Black’ v. ‘African American’ identity

  • Community is the answer
