Visions of Change: Conversations worth having with Amma Aboagye
Visions of Change is a series of conversations exploring themes of mission, community, and personal growth through the eyes of a diverse cast of black change agents. We've decided to use our platform to highlight these valuable discussions and shine a light on the change agents who are laying the ground work to help change for the future.
Overall, this series is a part of Bôhten’s journey of creating more diverse and meaningful content that speaks to us, and to you, on a deeper level. We hope these conversations serve as a resource and catalyst for more meaningful change within our communities and worldwide.
Our second feature is with self described “cultural innovator” @aaboagye. She takes a deeper dive into what it means to build black in communities and the importance of initiatives like that and many others.
