THE PROGRESSIVE MINDS SHOW
The Progressive Minds Show is a 501c3 nonprofit online radio show and media organization dedicated to building our community. We encourage and promote diverse perspectives as a way of stimulating unity and respect in our society. Our dialogue style engages with respected subject matter experts to educate, empower, and engage a global audience. As cultural advocates, we support initiatives dedicated to helping youths, the voiceless, and the disenfranchised. Our passion is to stand for cultural identity. Our style is unique as we consistently engage more than two analytical, critical, and expert views on each of the weekly topics. We are a committed radio show that has the interest of community growth at heart. It is our firm belief that ideas, solutions, and human resources abound so much within us in our communities hence when we are able to harness all of these in a collective and constructive dialogue, we will be able to bring positive results to many of the issues that we struggle with daily.
Positive Vibes or Progressive Minds were the two favorite phrases that will always jump at me anytime I will reflect on life. It was quite late afternoon when I finally settled on the latter as the vision that I would impact our society. My passion has always been for the well-being of people and community growth.
Over the years, The Progressive Minds Radio Show has covered a number of topics pertaining to socio-economic challenges, health crises, business aspirations, and many other areas within the realm of things that impact our communities in the Black Diaspora. Alinco has been very keen on incorporating many diverse persons of gender, race, nationalities, and others who have a direct impact on our community within the Diaspora.
