rashida-225x225Reesheda Graham-Washington joins me to talk about returning and giving back to the neighborhood she grew up in, learning “Asset Based Community Development” from the innate practices of her Great-Grandmother and African ancestors, social entrepreneurship risks and funding, her latest venture (L!VE Cafe), and the one thing she wants the church to hear from her as a black woman.

Reesheda is the Executive Director of Communities First Association, the Founder and CEO of L!VE Cafe, a transformational experience cafe and creative space, a licensed minister in the Evangelical Covenant Church, and a former education leader in Chicago Public Schools.
