    Season 1, Episode 18: Tesla Coils of the Black Man

    in Science

    Jabari Mufasa Elijah X, was born in Long Beach, California and moved to Fort Worth, TX when he was about five years old. In his final year of high school, he applied to Tuskegee University at the request of his parents, but he made his final decision to go to Tuskegee after attending a believers meeting, where the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan announced that the Holy Day of Atonement 2013 event would be held in Tuskegee, Alabama. While the school was already appealing to him because it's rich history, the great scientific and cultural contributions to the world, as well as a great engineering program, the Minister's words let him know that Tuskegee was the right choice for him, and went into Tuskegee University in the fall of 2014. Jabari figured he could do more for his nation and the world this way. At first, Jabari would major in aerospace engineering, but saw this leading to military applications for the most part. The main influence in his decision to become an electrical engineering major was a man named Nikolai Tesla, who invented many different electrical devices like the induction motor, as well as discovering   inductive coupling, and what would eventually become wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi). On campus, he is the VP of the Nation of Islam Student Association (NOISA), and also a member of the Black Board Deliberative Dialogue Group (BBDDG), an organization made up of students and residents, that work together to plan and develop different projects for the city, mostly aimed at improving the local economy and investing in real estate. Currently, he lives in Oklahoma City, OK and is participating in a computer science research program at Oklahoma State University for the month of June.

    Lily Bailey is a model and writer. She became a journalist in London in 2012, editing a news site and writing features and fashion articles for local publications including the Richmond Magazine and the Kingston Magazine. Lily lives in London with her dog, Rocky. Written when she was just 21 years old, Because We Are Bad is Lily Bailey’s first book.
    Tune in to hear host, Melanie Vann, and Lily discuss her journey through OCD and how she has been able to overcome her struggles and live a meaningful life.
