Stacy Swimp has found his calling, not only as president of the Frederick Douglass Foundation, but founder of Muenda, a non-profit Juvenile Justice organization; and the Project 21 black leadership network. Here he recalls what inspired him deep into community activism: "When I went through my own transformation process, I came across a poem by a lady named Mary Ann Barnes, which simply said, 'If no one will help me, I will help myself. And then I will help someone else. If no one will save me, I will save myself, and then I will save someone else. If no one will give me a job, I will make a job for myself and then make a job for someone else,' he tells Southern Sense host Annie Ubelis. "Well, I took that poem to heart."
