Living Dreams, Building Communities on Georgette Pierre Radio

“Spread love, it’s the Brooklyn Way” is how youth counselor and basketball coach, Randy Millard, lives his life.  Growing up in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, Randy saw a lot of things growing up as a kid that would’ve lead him down a different path. Knowing that most people don’t look back when they leave their ‘hood, Randy took the path less traveled. He obtained a bachelor’s degree from Norfolk State University in Virginia, came back and started building a foundation only he knew he had to build for his community. Randy joined me to share his story about his motivation for returning home, how he escaped the dangerous allures of his neighborhood growing up, and how he plans to connect with the upcoming generation.
