After witnessing people like Colin Kaepernick, Emma Gonzales, Tarana Burke, El Jones and Masuma Kahn risk their economic futures and physical safety to stand behind strong messages of social change, I designed the Purpose Collection to celebrate their efforts.
We conclude our three-part conversation with entrepreneur Alfred Burgesson. We talk eating dinner as a family, empowering ourselves to have control of your experiences, educating our children on "blackness", perceived blackness in Nova Scotia, black men dating white women and more!
We talk about Alfred's experience moving to Canada from Ghana, the Halifax Grammar School, almost dropping out of university, quitting basketball to follow his passions, starting a digital media company and building successful business stories in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

I was introduced to Lance by the wonderful Kate and Emma of The Magic Project. They invited us to speak on a public panel discussion about some of the challenges of being a Black male in Halifax. I was re-introduced to Lance as aquakultre shortly after, when he performed as part of the event. I was blown away by his presence as a performer his voice and his ability to make music that feels commercial yet raw enough that the streets will still f*ck with it. With a major co-sign from CBC, when he was selected as the winner of Searchlight 2018, he'll get a chance to share his voice with a much larger audience. Follow the drip!
