Tyrance Billingsley II, Black Tech Street, and the idea of Ubuntu

Tyrance Billingsley II joins Jesse and Chris to talk about Black Tech Street. Black Tech Street looks to build a thriving capitol of Black tech in Tulsa, starting on the grounds of Black Wall Street. Tyrance talks about his vision for Black Tech Street as a way to create both innovation and wealth for Tulsa's Black community and why using technology is the key. He also says that his driving philosophy in life is built around the idea of Ubuntu (not the operating system for my fellow tech nerds out there) but the Zulu word Ubuntu, which sometimes gets translated as "I am because we are" or "humanity towards others." Listen to a fantastic discussion that covers all of the pillars of that helped shape Black Tech Street. You might also enjoy a brief discussion on the series finale of Game of Thrones.
