This week the Sara and Kyle are joined by longtime friend, but first time guest to the podcast, Dwayne Jones. Dwayne is a community advocate in Orange Mound, a historic African American neighborhood located in the center of Memphis. Dwayne’s work to improve the neighborhood he grew up in takes on many forms - affordable housing, sustainable transportation, and food access and security - but isn’t without challenges that expose systemic racism at nearly every turn. Honestly, we could go on an on about the impact Dwayne has had on our lives, professionally and personally, but we found the strength to edit the episode down to a reasonable length. To understand our admiration, make sure your next visit to Memphis includes a bike tour of Orange Mound with Dwayne.
