For Young Professionals, Leadership Is Balanced On 'Access, Opportunity And Information'

Jan 8, 2016

As demographics in New Orleans continue to shift, a pivotal issue among young African Americans is to find and develop leaders in the community. WWNO’s business manager Jameeta Youngblood and Brian Turner of Xavier University’s psychology department know this all too well: they’ve both spent years serving on different organizations around town and have experienced firsthand the challenges that need to be overcome.

Youngblood is the president of the Urban League of Greater New Orleans Young Professionals, and Turner serves on several boards, including the Treme Improvement Political Society.
