Black Story Month: Growing Up Black with Jesse Ross


What does family mean to you? For Ms. Danielle, and a lot of us, family is everything. You learn so much about someone based on where they came from. This week, Ms. Danielle talks with Jesse Ross – Executive Director of Still Kickin, international speaker, diversity and inclusion leader, and father about growing up, living in North Minneapolis and what it’s like raising Black babies in a racist world.
