Episode 233 of the Revision Path podcast. It begins with host Maurice Cherry naming some of the episode’s sponsors, before advertising jobs currently posted on the show’s Job Board. As the show’s soundtrack plays, Cherry welcomes the listeners and names the following sponsors: Glitch, Google Design and MailChimp. Afterwards, he shares one of the reviews of the podcast that was posted on Apple Podcasts, and comments on the positive feedback the show’s Black Panther episode received.
Cherry then introduces his guest for that episode, Hadiya Williams. Some of the topics they discuss in the interview include: technology and design culture in Washington, DC, especially for black designers; AIGA; Hadiya Williams’ typical workday; how Williams founded her company, Black Pepper Paperie; Williams’ education at Bowie State University and Chicago’s Columbia College; the difference between design and art; the role of museums in her creative process; as well as the black aesthetic and the importance of incorporating African heritage in design.
Toward the end of the interview, Cherry asks Williams where the audience can find her online and thanks her for her participation. After the interview, background music fades in as Cherry thanks the episode’s sponsors again and implores his listeners to become patrons.
