StoryBoard 30

Exploring Our Stories. StoryBoard Memphis is a nonprofit multimedia resource for news and feature-length stories on local arts, culture, history, and community. This podcast is a longer cut of the half-hour radio show that airs on Memphis's FM 89.3 WYPL each Sunday evening at 5:30 PM. Taken right out of the pages of StoryBoard Memphis, this show asks Memphians to talk about their passions, their initiatives, or to just talk about what makes Memphis, Memphis.


episode 5: SB 30 Episode 5: Finding Success as a Black Male with Lakethen Mason

“…these kids are in the worst of circumstances in their neighborhoods … and owning your personal brand is about making sure that you own your life mirror and the love that you feel and not be distracted by the self-hate or the doubts of others, because that is the only way that you make it through this turbulent environment.”

When Lakethen Mason and Mark Fleischer sat down for our talk on WYPL FM 89.3, he had recently wrapped up his Maximizing Manhood Symposium at the Halloran Center, in which 37 panelists shared their journeys to success as Black men in Memphis. He shared his thoughts on the Symposium, and more, in our talk this week.
