Call in to speak with the host
Kat Calvin is a pioneer of the rarest sort, working diligently to bridge the gap between the digital revolution and cultural stereotypes. Or, as Saturdays host Joy Keys put it, “You’re a black geek girl.” In 2012, Kat founded Black Girls Hack, the first nonprofit hackathon series targeting the African American tech community. And true to fellow geeks everywhere, she doesn’t shy away from the uncool—even when that means freezing her fingers off. “I’m dying to go to Antarctica. Hack with penguins is what I’m gonna do,” she tells Joy. “There are people who go there on really cool scientific journeys. And I just want to go so bad. It’s on my bucket list. It is my bucket list.”
It's good to talk.
