A Shot of Brandy Podcast returns just in time for Black History Month! Martin Luther King Jr stated “Intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education.” This week’s guest, Dr. Quintin Hughes Sr, embodies that quote to the fullest. He is a pillar in the Oklahoma City community. He has a true passion for family, education, and revitalizing the eastside of OKC. This episode was recorded live at Kindred Spirits. Kindred Spirits is a bar and cultural gathering place partly owned by Quintin. It is curated for like-minded individuals and he had black professionals in mind when cultivating the space. Quintin also speaks on the importance of increasing wealth within the black community and his quest to inspire change. While he prefers to stay in the shadows, Quintin is an extraordinary leader who’s impact will be prevalent in Okc for many years to come. He also leads a nonprofit organization called Northeast OKC Renaissance. Their goal is to be a catalyst for ethical place-based community development in Northeast Oklahoma City. They are doing amazing work to preserve and re-energize the community. Quintin has done a phenomenal job and would love to continue to change the narrative and perception of NEOKC. HIs fervor, commitment, and pure love for his people is unmatched. Please support by listening to this episode and visiting Kindred Spirits!
