Mentorship and Collaboration in the Black Community | Dr. Joan speaks with Dr. Jacqueline King Part 3

The purpose of a community is to bring security and prosperity to its people. Mentorship and collaboration are two strategies for the Black community to heal, grow, and thrive. Collaboration among people of African Ancestry not only improves the lives of individual Black people but also increases the potential for healing and development of the Black community. How can we build reliable systems for others to be mentored, learn, and succeed?
