I started 25, Black and Alive as a means to spread knowledge, wisdom and understanding to the people. Though the title of the site has black in it, ignorance is colorblind. Being that I am a “black” male, I do focus on tackling the obstacles that “black” people encounter. But anyone who is willing to learn can learn from the things that I write about. My goal is to do away with all the lies, the lies that have been taught to us throughout the years in order to keep us ignorant of our true potential and greatness.
I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA. In a neighborHOOD similar to all the other hoods across America. A little neighborhood known as Wilkinsburg. Name an affliction that has affected your neighborhood and I’m pretty sure it has done the same to mine. I lived in, survived and overcame the obstacles that were placed before me. I have learned a few things in my short time here on earth and I am working hard to make sure that the youth learn them in half the time.
I am ready to build and do not know how to do anything other than that. If you want to build the community as I do, let’s build!
