In the inaugural episode of Between Two Founders: Side Stories, host Sean Sutherland speaks with D. Watkins, author of “We Speak For Ourselves: A Word from Forgotten Black America” and professor at the University of Baltimore. The Side Stories offshoot of the video series focuses on local Baltimore luminaries building a business, brand, or movement within the city and doesn’t necessarily have to be startup-focused.
Sutherland, Director of Accounts for Kapowza – a local creative agency – asks about D. Watkins’ recent publishing success, new projects on the horizon including working with Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith on a 12-O’Clock Boys movie, and his thoughts on on a misguided collaboration between Pizza Hut and Cheez-Its. What started innocently enough as a conversation on Twitter about the merits of the aforementioned Cheez-Its Pizza, blossomed into the video you can watch below, where Sutherland and Watkins speak about perceptions of Baltimore.
