  In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we're re-airing one of our favorite episodes from last year. We hope you enjoy revisiting this crucial and enlightening conversation with some of Chicago's best.  At Certiport, we are determined to help students of color rise to new levels of success and education, while listening and learning from others on the best ways to become true anti-racist advocates. Shifting our classroom and education mindset is crucial to correct racial and economic inequities.  For this week's episode, we had the privilege of sitting down with two amazing professionals from the Chicago Public School system: Dr. Nadine LeBlanc and Robert “Rob” Lee.  Dr. Nadine L. Leblanc's professional career spans more than 25 years as an educator, building a track record of outstanding performance in teaching as well as in administration. Her most recent efforts are on a project she has labeled “Racism, Response and Responsibility” as an act of resistance to the systemic issues that still threaten Blacks within the U.S. The project includes an equity initiative called “When Black and Brown Men Teach” which engages male educators of color in the Business and IT department in Chicago Public Schools, while they mentor and coach male students of color. She lives and breathes her philosophy that is etched in the belief that all children can and will learn, given the opportunity and resources. Rob Lee has been teaching at Michele Clark Magnet High School for the past three years and has been an instrumental part of the When Black and Brown Men Teach program. Born and raised on the westside of Chicago, Rob has always had a knack for technology and that knack drove him to make a career switch from the transportation industry to technology. He received his bachelor's in information technology from the University of Phoenix and his Master's in Information Security from Phoenix University. He started his career at CPS in 2014 and has been dedicated to his students every day since.  In this special episode, we talk about the “When Black and Brown Men Teach” initiative, what Rob and Dr. LeBlanc have done to help their Black students thrive, and how creating brave and authentic classrooms can show Black students that there isn't one way to be a successful Black professional.  You can learn more about empowering students of color on our blog: https://certiport.pearsonvue.com/Blog/2020/August/Empowering-Students-of-Color.  Read through additional information about the “When Black and Brown Men Teach” initiative here: https://blog.cps.edu/2021/11/17/black-and-brown-men-teach/.  Dr. LeBlanc has also graciously offered her Journey to Justice presentation, for teachers who want to spark conversations and trainings at their schools: https://certiport.filecamp.com/s/JourneytoJustice_DrLeBlanc/d

Born and raised in the Washington DC area, he moved to Philadelphia in 1997.The self-taught artist started working in paper cutout in 2003 and has been consistently exploring ways to transcend the traditional medium, translating his designs into large scale murals, graphic novels, fine art prints and metal wall hangings. Inspired by his surroundings, current events and architecture, his black and white installations have become iconic in the Philadelphia region.His work explores themes of race, sexuality, politics, history and art, all through the subtractive art of paper cutout. His designs are all created from a single piece of black paper where all the white sections are excised by hand with an exacto blade and all the black sections must connect to the whole. Often quite small, the original paper cutouts are scaled up to fit their intended space.He was a finalist for Pew Fellowship and has worked on major murals with the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. His graphic novel, “Stuffed Animals” was awarded a Xeric Grant for graphic fiction. As a visiting artist, he is often called upon to lecture and instruct at colleges such as The University of the Arts and institutions such as The Barnes Foundation and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. His commissioned and uncommisioned work have gained a large regional following and has been covered by national and international press and blogs.Exhibitions of his original paper cutouts continue to astonish followers of his work with their intricacy and craftsmanship. The intimate scale of the paper cutouts contrasted with his monumental murals, create a tension between the private and public aspects of the work.

Brief summary of episode:Jack O'Connell has been an avid music lover since he was in diapers and was burning mixes at age 7, ripping a personal Beach Boys hits anthology. He has been listening constantly since. From hearing Fastball's All the Pain Money Can Buy on cassette in the car to elementary school, to The Spy Who Shagged Me soundtrack on the Walkman, he discovered music early and was hooked. Along the way he endured the zeitgeist of Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC, dancing along to their performances at Madison Square Garden on VHS. Eventually his babysitter introduced him to the local alternative rock station–99.1 WHFS (R.I.P.)–where he could finally hear pop-punk icons like Blink-182 and Good Charlotte, Jack's first exposure to the combination of raw rock and catchy pop.  Blink also influenced him toward the drums. During a drive past the Baltimore School for Drumming while listening to Enema of the State at age 10, Travis Barker unwittingly set events in motion that led Jack toward devotion to the kit. During his eight years of private drum lessons with virtuoso and now long-time friend John Coale, Jack practiced his craft with Kidz Rock bands at The Music Workshop, instructed by singer/guitarist Fred Moss in the ways of performing and band dynamics. Eventually he played drums with his middle school's jazz ensemble, taking him out of his head-bashing comfort zone and into more complex and elegant styles.  Since playing in liturgical and theatre bands in high school, he has played countless shows at venues in and around Baltimore, as well as major cities around the east coast on tour with surf rockers Trunkweed, honing an understanding for the politics of booking and the challenges of creating good live sound.  Jack attended a summer program on music industry at Drexel University, which cemented his decision to attend Towson University.  While working on his audio degree, doing audio/visual work for Towson event services, and teaching drum lessons from home, he began buying recording gear, building a studio, and producing on his own. Jack played virtually every venue in Baltimore and published a full-length record, Anything But Ordinary, which Jack co-wrote and produced, with his former band, pop-rockers The Chance.​Jack has more recently been making music with his brother, Danny, as Backyard Games, and is currently working on their first full-length album, all recorded and produced at O'Connell Sound.

Brief summary of episode:Niles Tatum is a self-taught multimedia artist based in Baltimore, Maryland.  He first began creating at the age of 8, deeply inspired by the vibrancy of the cartoons in his youth. His beginnings would later foreshadow his propensity for hyper-saturation and contrast. With his emphasis on color and distortion, which often borders psychedelia, his work aims to communicate the complexities of his community, their love, their pain, and the world they inhabit.His medium of choice is marker, though he frequents digital creation, collage, and oil paint. His work conveys its whimsy through the lens of cultural nuances, centering the feelings, experiences, and relationships of the marginalized. Thus, it is juxtaposed– that which is frequently repressed and an emphatic, bright display that calls both attention and serious thought.The Truth In This ArtThe Truth In This Art is a podcast interview series supporting vibrancy and development of Baltimore & beyond's arts and culture.Mentioned in this Episode:Niles TatumTo find more amazing stories from the artist and entrepreneurial scenes in & around Baltimore, check out my episode directory. Stay in TouchNewsletter sign-upSupport my podcastShareable link to episodeSPONSORSforaged. a hyper-seasonal eatery: Farm-fresh seasonal plates, beer & wine served in a warm, casual space lined with greenery. each item on the menu is comprised of local and seasonal ingredients. the concept is true to chef Chris Amendola's ethos in the kitchen, one that is deeply rooted in the woods. foragedeatery.com ★ Support this podcast ★
