Ep. 13: Black Visionaries - with special guests Michael Ajakwe Jr., Romal Tune, and Lawrence Ray Parker, Jr.
Do you have a large vision or purpose? Have you ever had a big idea but weren’t sure if you could make it work? Get ready to be inspired and motivated by three very special guys who are breaking new ground in their own unique ways.
My guests are in very different fields but they have something in common: they’re all accomplishing big things by following their inspiration. And they all happen to be African-American, so I call this episode, “Black Visionaries.” Guests: Michael Ajakwe, Jr., Romal Tune, Lawrence Ray Parker, Jr.

This episode is dedicated to Michael Ajakwe, Jr. who passed away May 31, 2018. Being unaware of his illness, I was truly heartbroken to learn of his death. What a painful reminder how important it is to stay in touch with people we care about. Learn more about Michael.

(Like the other Soul Connect Radio episodes, this was first released in 2012)
Wim Wenders Oscar-nominated documentary, PINA, about modern dance icon Pina Bausch, and the Cirque du Soleil show, OVO, about the secret world of insects, both got me thinking about the importance and rewards of collaboration as well as some of the keys to aging gracefully.How to engage our inner child The difference between childish immaturity and child-like openness and wonder Flexibility The rewards of a multi-cultural lifestyle
OVO soundtrack, including “Flea Girls”
PINA - documentary by Wim Wenders
WINGS OF DESIRE - feature film by Wim Wenders’ - this haunting movie about angels walking among us is a must-see for metaphysical- and spiritually-minded people.
