It was a pleasure to speak with the two complementing spirits behind Victory & Noble, a storytelling company. In this 2-part conversation for our Deconstructing Dominant Cultures Series, Tori Reid and Patrick A. Howell — children of cultural and intellectual icons — reveal their own legacy project, and their energy and determination are sure to inspire, educate, and transform.
Both Tori and Patrick — with Victory & Noble, with their podcast and books, and all of their projects under development — move us forward with a critical optimism rooted in both the real struggles of our past and our present, but also a futurism grounded in the belief that we have the power to not only imagine but also harvest a tomorrow that is brighter than today. "Here's To Life with Tori Reid" podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, and Stitcher. Dispatches from the Vanguard: The Global International African Arts Movement Versus Donald J. Trump, by Patrick A. Howell.
