Hey Family!

It’s the day after Valentine’s Day and I find myself still gravitating to the lovely Facebook/Instagram/Twitter posts of people who celebrated yesterday with their loved ones. I love love.  I love people who display love, people who give love, people who feel loved.

That’s why the relationship President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama openly display toward each other is so inspiring and lovely to watch. As a power couple who genuinely support one another, It’s peak #relationshipgoals for all the world to see.

But they aren’t the only power couple to pay attention to.  Stefanie Brown James and Quentin James are committed to engaging the African American electorate to empower themselves. Their decades of service in community engagement and progressive politics led them to found The Collective PAC, and organization dedicated to building Black political power by recruiting, training, funding and electing progressive black candidates on the local, state and federal level.

Join me as I talk to them about their story as well as what they see in the future for  The Collective.

It’s Black History Month on Enlighten Me. You gon’ learn today.

As always, tune in every Wednesday from 4-5p ET on WERA-FM 96.7 in Arlington or check us out online at Facebook.com/EnlightenMeonWERA or on Twitter @EnlightenMeWERA @andreacambron.
