On today’s show, recorded in our mobile podcast studio STORYTELLA, I sit down with Keba Konte, Founder of Red Bay Coffee in Oakland, CA. Keba is someone who walks the walk and is committed to his vision of doing good in the world. Born and raised in San Francisco/Bay Area, he grew up in a creative household, with his photographer mother. Inspired by activism in school, Keba went to college to study photojournalism using his art to share a message.

After shooting album covers for Bay Area legend E-40, he’d leave school to capture Nelson Mandela’s historical election run in Johannesburg, where he learned about the South African hip hop community and the reach that the music has across the diaspora.
