Updated: Jan 30, 2022
"For Black History Month, It's Easy Son will be honoring the icons and trailblazers who have joined Gerald Hector to share their personal journeys over the past almost two years. Since this podcast was launched, Gerald has welcomed, civil rights icons, political and spiritual leaders, an NFL legend, Olympians, a World Champion, an eight-time Mr. Olympia, a World Cup and EPL standout, and a host of other higher education and business leaders.
Given the feedback and overwhelming response from viewers, for the month of February, we will rebroadcast twenty-eight episodes featuring these individuals. Our regular Wednesday, 8pm time slot for the month will feature Ambassador Andrew Young, a civil rights icon and friend to Dr. Martin Luther King. Dr. Dorothy Cowser Yancy, the First Full Professor, African American with tenure at Georgia Tech, President of Johnson C. Smith University & two-time president of Shaw University. Mr. Harvey Gantt, former Mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, and the first student of color to attend Clemson University. Dr. Beverly Tatum, past president of the prestigious Spelman College for African American women.
For all other nights in February at 7pm, we will be rebroadcasting episodes from Lee Haney (8-time Mr. Olympia), David Thomas, president of the prestigious Morehouse College. Michael Dean Perry, NFL legend. Danielle Williams, 2015 World Champion. Otis Moss Jr., civil rights icon and minister. Bishop Claude Richard Alexander, the Pastor of the Park Church Ministries. David Moody, minority construction businessman from Atlanta, Georgia. Mr. Willie Woods, Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Morehouse College. Mr. Neil "Shaka" Hislop, professional soccer athlete. The listing of guests is extensive, so you will have to tune in to hear these amazing stories of perseverance and triumph. Listen as they share their words of wisdom and hope.
This podcast has exceeded all expectations in terms of its impact, and at its outset, it was Gerald's intention to shine a light on lives and careers that are "leaving vibrations in the earth." Given where we are in this current dispensation of time, we need more hope and inspiration than ever before to truly understand that what we are currently experiencing is temporary, but if we remain focused and diligent at striving for the prize, we will be successful.
Tune in. Tell and friend. Be blessed every night this week in Black History Month by some incredible individuals."
