“What is a Leader? A leader is someone who can connect with and inspire those around them to do great things. Some of you may wonder if you have what it takes to be a leader. The answer is YES!” Watch this Sincerely, Crispus Attucks episode featuring Qureem, a Lincoln Middle School student, Josh Hunter, Crispus Attucks Community Center Director, and former Lancaster City Council President Ted Darcus.

“As young adults, never underestimate the power of your voice to transform. Be your authentic self and use that voice to drive change in your own community. That voice can take many forms such as volunteering, mentoring, writing, public speaking, protesting, politics or donating money and resources, to name a few. Just know that your voice can be the catalyst to positively change your community.” This episode of Sincerely, Crispus Attucks features Timmy, a J.P. McCaskey High School graduate, attorney Kareemah Mayer of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC and Jennifer Craighead Carey, partner at Barley Snyder.

“To quote the black poet Langston Hughes, ‘You’ll be reaching landings and turning corners, and sometimes going in the dark where there ain’t been no light.’ Remember that despite the challenges, don’t be discouraged. Just keep pressing forward to achieve your dreams.” Watch this Sincerely, Crispus Attucks episode featuring Tacura, a J.P. McCaskey High School student, WGAL News 8 Anchor Danielle Woods and retired WGAL News 8 Anchor Ron Martin.

“My advice to you is: do not let negativity turn you into a negative person. Hate only begets hate. Study the real history of the African people. There much that we do not know. Discover your talents and develop those talents to provide opportunity for yourself and your community.” Watch this Sincerely, Crispus Attucks episode featuring Ashley, a J.P. McCaskey High School student, Lancaster City Council President Ismail Smith-Wade-El and Ron Ford, former Lancaster City Council President and former Lancaster County Commissioner.
