In this episode we speak to Sophia Mobley about her youtube channel Ask A Black Girl. We talk to her about what led her to create the channel and what her goals are as it grows. We also talk about the school and career path that has contributed to her project. Sophia tells us how she applies the “Failing Fast” concept to her youtube channel, blog and other projects.
“Well, in a nutshell the purpose of this channel is to inspire conversation. I have a friend who is white, who is willing to ask me any and everything that comes to his mind about black people. We have shared many laughs, and many debates, but at the end we always find out a lot about each other, from a racial perspective. Of course I don’t have even a fraction of the “answers”, and by no means can I speak for all black women, or black people for that matter. I can only share my perspective. However, the conversations with my friend changed his mind about a LOT of things. According to him, he can see black people in a different way now that he knows a little bit more about us. So, this made me wonder… how many more people could change just from asking questions about each other? I am setting out to open the doors of communication amongst people. I believe communication can help heal our country. Join me in the conversation!”
Tune in and enjoy an interesting conversation about creativity, design and race.
