Cllctivly: A network to grow Black Genius
Media and pop culture … like HBO’s current series, “We Own this City,” or from two decades ago, “The Wire” … help perpetuate a violent narrative about Baltimore.
But Jamye Wooten intends to reframe the city’s reputation. The nonprofit he created, called Cllctivly, works to create and fund a network of people doing good, which tells a different story:
“Narrative goes hand in hand with resource mobilization and so narrative is important for us in our work. So we believe that we should be the ones - that folks within our communities should be the ones telling our own stories and making sure we’re highlighting the great work happening here in the city.”
