One year ago, deep in the heart of the Pandemic, one month after George Floyd and the protests after changed the world, with the 2020 presidential election kicking into gear, Stephen and Ron were laying the foundation for their podcast and speaking to guests for the first time.
After speaking to Gang Interventionist Alfred Lomas, another gang interventionist, Tommie T-Top Rivers, came onto the podcast to speak with Ron and Stephen.
This podcast didn't go the usual route. While the team spoke about how race impacted the world of gang violence and how we can learn about how race and gang membership have similarities, Tommie took the podcast in another direction. It was time to speak about George Floyd, race in America and how both sides were getting it wrong.
A year later, this podcast is being posted for the first time to serve as a time capsule into a turbulent American moment and how Positive Identity, Ron and Stephen grew from it.
"Positive Identity: It's another week where we tell you inspiring and positive stories of people of different races doing good things for each other and the world. Then from there, we become better people and learn more how to make the world better for everyone."
