It is no exaggeration to say that cash rules everything around us. The need for money dictates where we work, what we eat, and how we spend our free time. For those who are in an area of low income and low resources, it is even harder to function. It is easy to get stuck in a cycle that keeps one in the same place of poverty.

In this episode, our hosts Lena and Aaron explore a big solution to this problem: education. They take a deep dive into the history of America and what events lead many people of color into a situation of less education and more scarcity. Then looking toward the future, they discuss how through dedication to education, many people who wouldn’t have thought they could “make it out,” will end up somewhere better than they thought possible. Let’s face it y’all, we can’t all be rappers and hoopers to reach our goals—it’s time to get educated.
