Tonight, on It's Real Talk Radio, we will be joined by special guest, Deja Grissom, as we continue our display of Black Excellence! Deja is a 19 year old freshman in college who is continuing her journey to success. Deja is the little sister of our previous guest, Kendra Grissom, who we had on for a discussion back on May 15th, 2020. It’s an honor to have another young, Black woman join us for a discussion, as we acknowledge the will and determination in Black Excellence.

Deja shows great promise like a lot of other young Black men and women, but it doesn't get the recognition is deserves, because the media and entertainment industries love to show the ignorant side of Black people, but not the perseverance if you aren't dribbling a basketball, catching a football, on the big screen, or doing something that the powers that be can capitalize from. This is a narrative that has to change and with every discussion we have with Black people who are looking to make a positive impact, we're gonna help chip away at it.

Born a native of Baltimore City, Deja could have easily followed the crowd, went down a dark road and became another statistic, but she refused to allow that to happen. With the guidance of a pair of great parents who would not allow their children to get caught in the madness, Deja persevered and is now on her way to earning her college degree, as both her big sisters have obtained. Her big sister Kendra has earned a Bachelor's Degree in African American Studies and her oldest sister Tierra has a degree in Accounting.

Majoring is English, Deja has big goals to become an author, producer and screen writer. She also plans to work for a Black owned magazine, Tonight, we will be discussing what life was like growing up in Baltimore, issues within the Black Community, politics, COVID-19, Black History, her career choice of screen writing and womanism.

It's about to get Real!
