In this podcast, Nikki Gamble talks to Frederick Joseph about his recently published book: The Black Friend
Writing from the perspective of a friend, Frederick Joseph offers candid reflections on his own experiences with racism and conversations with prominent artists and activists about theirs—creating an essential read for white people who are committed anti-racists and those newly come to the cause of racial justice.
Frederick is an award-winning marketing professional, activist, philanthropist, and author of the upcoming highly anticipated book The Black Friend (2020), with over 10 years of marketing experience, and a Forbes Under 30 list maker for Marketing and Advertising.
He is also the sole creator of the largest GoFundMe campaign in history, the #BlackPantherChallenge, which ultimately generated over $43 million dollars in earned advertising and media for Disney and raised over $950K and allowed more than 75,000 children worldwide to see ‘Black Panther’ for free. He is also the creator of the largest individual Covid-19 support effort, the #RentRelief campaign, which has raised over $1 million dollars.
Frederick has been honoured as the 2018 Comic-Con Humanitarian of the Year award and a member of the 2018 Root 100″ list of Most Influential African Americans.
