Leroy (he/him) – I am from the beloved city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I am a Black Studies major at Community College of Philadelphia and also a Photojournalist. As I am growing to understand my overall purpose in life, I have and will continue to intentionally debunk the negative images that are consistently given concerning Black folk in America. With that said, I use my platforms in education via Black Studies and media via photographs and videos. I am a firm believer that my candle does not get brighter by putting out others; my role is to help my peers academically, professionally, and personally so that we all shine.
