Ellie 2.0 Radio – April 22, 2019

An Ellie’s Talking Head show, the theme is about engineering change—societal and personal. In the A-Block, I talk about protests over the 1968 Miss America Pageant for its lack of color diversity and unfair representation of women, spawning the first-ever Ms. Black America Pageant. The B-Block has stories about LeBron James’ I Promise School in Akron and how social change occurred to reduce bias against LGBTQ people and people of color (other than the white color). I also talk about how Canada has been successfully eradicating poverty by changing attitudes. Finally, in the C-Block, I share about the 15th anniversary of me leaving my wife Lydia to begin a journey to find the true “me.” How my life changed!
