Deolis Allen III opens up about finding opportunities and guiding the minds of Young Black Men navigating today

Michigan is a mid-western heartland welcoming people worldwide for beautiful Autumns, rich apples & cherries, and American tradition. The essence of the state through the lens of a Black Man magnifies the dual consciousness highlighted in literature by Ralph Ellison, Amiri Baraka, Richard Wright, Yusef Shakur, and many more. Deolis Allen III joined Detroit is Different to share his story giving an insightful perspective to this all. Allen was born in Ann Arbor as his parents finished their collegiate journeys at the University of Michigan. Allen’s parents eventually settled in the Highland Park community to stand as a presence of intellect, value, and success inside a Black community. Allen opens up about Cass Tech, Eastern Michigan University, and the role of Black men in the community. He provides a grand historical overview of the relationship between young men and older men. A member, facilitator, and teacher of the Better Men Outreach program, Allen shares how basketball has been a key in developing relationships and instilling value into young Black men of Detroit.

Malik Yakini on Detroit is Different 2021

Malik Yakini is a Detroit original. Naturally creative and driven towards higher quality of life through Black Liberation, Gardening, and seeking Knowledge are pillars of life I’ve witnessed from Baba Malik. He was the original guest on Detroit is Different and seven years later he joins me again to speak in more of the macro on philosophy, theory, and the need for action in our community. Malik is dynamic from works leading reggae band (Akoben), helping found an African centered school (Nsoroma Institute), book stoor (Black Star Community Bookstore), Urban Farm (D-Town Farms), Food Co-op (Detroit People’s Food Co-op), and a food justice institution (Detroit Black Community Food Security Network), and the funk/hip-hop/reggae/soul fusion band (Mollywop) all are connected to Malik Yakini. In this conversation we explore his takes on media today and information. A great count and counterpoint discussion on capitalism and white supremacy is had as well. This was a fun talk with laughter, thought, and inspired some actions on my behalf. Check out this interview and the original Detroit is Different interview with Malik Yakini.
