  • The Man in Control of Transforming Detroit

    Welcome to another clip of Market Mondays! In this special edition, we sit down with the influential CEO of Bedrock, Kofi Bonner, for an insightful conversation about his remarkable journey in the realm of real estate development and urban revitalization. Having deployed billions of dollars in capital and led efforts to rejuvenate cities, Kofi shares his experiences and the transformative strategies that have positioned Detroit and Cleveland as burgeoning world-class cities of the 21st century.


    Our discussion kicks off with Rashad Bilal asking Kofi about his path to becoming the CEO of Bedrock. Kofi recalls his extensive career, from his early days in California as a real estate developer to his tenure in Cleveland as the Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of the Cleveland Browns. After a rich career with various stints, including taking companies public and facing the taxing nature of real estate development, Kofi retired in 2020. However, the unexpected onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and a timely call from a headhunter led him to reconsider retirement and eventually embrace the challenge of revitalizing Detroit.


    Kofi’s narrative sheds light on his initial skepticism about the opportunity in Detroit and how a personal visit to the city, coupled with conversations with Dan Gilbert, Bedrock’s chairman, ultimately convinced him to take the helm. He vividly describes the rejuvenated energy of Detroit and how the vision of bringing back the city’s prominence resonated with him.


    Troy Millings, another host, also chimes in, acknowledging the revitalization efforts in downtown Detroit, home to major companies like Ally and Rocket Mortgage. He inquires about Kofi’s strategic vision for the city’s development over the next five to ten years. Kofi elaborates on the critical importance of rebuilding the downtown core to boost tax revenues, which are essential for sustaining public services throughout the city. Renovating classic buildings and enhancing public spaces between them are key to attracting residents, businesses, and tourists to the heart of the city.


    Kofi goes on to highlight various initiatives that Bedrock has spearheaded to make downtown Detroit more vibrant and appealing, from establishing a roller rink and hosting winter festivals to supporting major national and international events. Upcoming attractions like the Detroit Grand Prix, the Movement electronic music festival, and the Afro Nation festival are set to showcase the city's revitalized spirit to the world, inviting global audiences to rediscover Detroit.


    Join us in this episode to hear Kofi Bonner’s firsthand account of leading urban transformation and his vision for Detroit’s future.

  • The Future of Affordable Housing in NYC with Alicia Keys

    In this enlightening clip of EYL, our host Rashad Bilal sits down with the multi-talented artist and advocate Alicia Keys to discuss a pressing issue that touches the lives of many New Yorkers: affordable housing. As a native New Yorker herself, Alicia Keys shares her personal experiences growing up in affordable housing designed specifically for artists. She candidly discusses how these programs provided her with the vital access and opportunities that shaped her illustrious career.


    Rashad and Alicia delve into the current state of affordable housing in New York City, highlighting the dramatic rise in rental costs and the unfortunate phase-out of several beneficial housing programs. With the average rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan soaring to almost $4,000, they explore the stark realities facing young professionals and creatives who are being priced out of the city.


    Alicia reflects on the invaluable role that these artist-specific housing programs played in her life, not just as a place to live but as a crucial support system that kept her rooted in a vibrant cultural environment. She emphasizes the importance of maintaining such programs to ensure that the city’s diverse cultural landscape continues to thrive. Both hosts argue that pricing artists and creatives out of the city ultimately harms the entire ecosystem, taking away from New York the very soul and creativity that define it.


    The conversation goes beyond just housing to talk about the broader implications of access to creative spaces. Alicia shares her current efforts in creating fellowship programs for young people interested in set design, costume design, and other artistic fields. These programs aim to bridge the gap and offer invaluable learning opportunities under industry greats, ensuring that the next generation of artists has both the skills and the inspiration to contribute back to the city's cultural economy.


    Join us in this compelling discussion that puts a spotlight on affordable housing, creative access, and the continuing efforts to keep New York City a welcoming hub for all artists and dreamers.

  • EYL #289 Kamala Harris on Student Loan Forgiveness, Access to Capital, Black Business, & Affordable Housing

    In this enlightening video, Vice President Kamala Harris discusses a series of ambitious initiatives by the Biden Administration aimed at bolstering economic opportunities and reducing wealth disparities across America. The video highlights the administration's efforts to address historic inequalities affecting Black veterans with the GI Bill and the disproportionate student debt burden on Black students.


    Further explored are significant legislative changes, such as the exclusion of medical debt from credit scores, which directly impact financial health. Vice President Harris details the transformative potential of the new Infrastructure Bill, designed to reconnect communities and stimulate economic growth, with a $158 million investment expected to create 13,000 jobs in Atlanta alone.


    The discussion also covers the critical issues of wealth disparity in the Black community due to limited access to capital, emphasizing the administration's commitment to providing the necessary resources to turn great ideas into successful ventures. Homeownership is spotlighted as a crucial avenue for wealth building, coupled with the administration's achievement in forgiving over $150 billion in student debt, underscoring a significant relief effort for many Americans.


    Vice President Harris concludes by reinforcing the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in investing across all sectors of the American economy, illustrating how these values are integral to the nation's progress and prosperity.
