JSC Radio Ep. 61.5: I’m Black & I Have A Dad


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — What’s Happening People! The Cause Speeds on Its Way and it’s been a minute since I’ve dropped a “.5” on you, but this was too good to get crammed into one show.

Initially, I had planned on this being the bulk of Ep. 61, but, because of #Lions, there was no way that I could give this interview its proper justice by having it tied to Jim Caldwell. Ep. 61.5 needed to stand on its own.

This week, we welcome JSC Contributor Jazmine Duke back to the show. She made a very notable appearance on the show a year ago and this time she’s back with her father, Aaron, with whom she co-wrote a book called I’m Black and I Have A Dad. She has also previously written on this site on Father’s Day last year, telling a story about how her dad legit saved her life

Aaron Duke, is more than Jazmine’s dad. He’s a retired U.S. Marine, a self-made man, and after listening to this show, you will see where Jaz gets it from in terms of their raw and outspoken nature. The interview is nearly an hour long and if you’re one of those people who pucker up at the talk of racism and sexism…then you need to grow up and put on your big boy pants because it’s gonna get woke in here.
