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. Their dialogue style engages with respected subject matter experts to educate, empower, and engage a global audience. As cultural advocates, they support initiatives dedicated to helping youth, the voiceless, and the disenfranchised. Their passion is to stand for cultural identity. Their style is unique as they consistently engage more than two analytical, critical and expert views on each of the weekly topics.

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.
