The PGCSIF Clan - Building A Movement
Some of us here at the PGCSIF are big Wu-Tang Clan fans. Not only of their moniker pulled from our favorite martial arts films and their music, but the ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit that brought them together to create a movement. We were excited to watch the Showtime Series Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men. What we saw was the power of idealism, brotherhood, and love all focused on the collective ownership of improving one's condition. For those of you who may not be aware of the Wu-Tang Clan aka the black Beatles (we deem that impossible but just in case) they were a collection of outsiders (9 members in one group) that bent the conventional parameters of hip hop in the 1990s and tackled an unfair music industry business model in favor of the artist. More on the Wu here.
So where are we going with this? We reach the peak of visibility and excitement this time of year as we have just celebrated our eighth cohort of 40 amazing Prince Georgians under the age of 40. As we keep emphasizing Forty UNDER 40 is outstanding but our platform goes beyond recognition. We are activating talent and creating a movement to benefit Prince George's County. So imagine what will happen when we take a collection of these amazing Prince Georgians and focus them on bending the conventional parameters of how we build the future of our beloved County.
The movement is ramped up and we are raising hell (not in a anti-christian way) with the flavor...
