Season 1 of The Positive Controversy with Kristen Pope

#PositiveControversy: Whose Uptown is it? A Conversation with Pastor Mike Walrond (Episode 5)

This week, I pursue the controversy of a changing America in conversation with Pastor Mike Walrond, leader of one of Harlem’s largest and fastest growing churches, First Corinthian Baptist Church. He is running for New York’s 13th Congressional District. A newcomer to politics, his grassroots campaign is inspiring many to believe even a little bit harder.

#PositiveControversy: The Other “B” Word (Episode 4)

The cliché that sticks and stones may break our bones, but words can never hurt us, is a misconstrued declaration of self-empowerment. The fact of the matter is that our words have power and if we are truly going to empower one another, we must speak with careful consideration of the power held in our words. We hope that you all join the conversation in Episode 4 of “The Positive Controversy,” as I sit down with, Life Coach, Author and Speaker Dee Marshall and TV Personality Lyndsay Christian, two women that truly empower me be bold, beautiful and brave and would never refer to me as a demeaning “B” word.
