It is hard to refer to either of the Jackson couple without mentioning the other. They are truly a team who have distinguished themselves as urban heroes both individually and as a couple. Both are CUBM graduates, with Helen earning her Masters in Organizational Leadership and Andrew working on his bachelor's degree as we broadcast. Helen also serves as the Recruiting Specialist for CUBM, while Andrew serves as building maintenance supervisor for the seminary in which CUBM has classes. Both the Jacksons join Karla and John today to talk about their lives together and their ministry philosophy that has earned them the well-deserved title of urban heroes!
Yes, today's guest has the same last name as Karla Byrd, John's cohost, and that is because Oliver Byrd is Karla's husband. On today's show, John and Karla begin interviewing the 2015 class of Urban Heroes and they will start with Oliver. Oliver worked at Mellon Bank for many years, but also served the community as the chair of the United Way and the chairman of the August Wilson Center for African American Culture in downtown Pittsburgh. Oliver will talk about growing up in Pittsburgh and what motivated him to serve so selflessly throughout his career.
Hip-Hop has not only grown but has expanded and created insane amounts of opportunities for the music industry. It was said to be a phase that wouldn't last but a few years but has since changed the game tremendously.

Yara Kaleemah was born in Newark, NJ in the early 90's. As a child she would spend hours writing stories. When her friends were outside, playing, she was in the house writing. Being that she was an only child she had a lot of time on her hands. Naturally, when people asked what she wanted to be when she grew up she would say "an author."
In 2013, Yara published her first novella, Too Much to Chew. It was the greatest accomplishment. Soon after came three more outstanding urban fiction novels. Then, she started S.W.A.G Productions. Wanting to establish something creative, the acronym stands for Strong Women Achieving Greatness. SWAG Productions is a platform for self-published authors. The company offers services such as editing, proofreading, and typing.
Now, Yara is working hard at school and becoming a bestselling author. She is excited to embark on this new journey with SWAG Productions and fE Mag. Even though sometimes it is difficult to juggle motherhood, being a wife, a student, an author, and a publisher, she manages. With hard work and dedication she will achieve all of her goals.
