First in Future: William C. Friday Fellowship for Human Relations CEO Abdul Rasheed (Toss-back)

Summary:  A few months ago, we heard from Abdul Rasheed, CEO of theWilliam C. Friday Fellowship for Human Relations, on how to make a difference in creating civil dialogue. We wanted to go back to that conversation to re-examine what it means to be a citizen and to be an active part of our community through leadership. Follow the conversation we will talk with IEI program and policy manager, Maggie Woods.

This installment was part of a special 13-segment series produced in collaboration with UNC-TV, and recorded in UNC-TV’s Legislative Studio in downtown Raleigh. We are excited to share the First in Future podcast via traditional means and via taped segments to air on the North Carolina Channel! Visit for specific air dates.

Excerpts:  “In today’s world…we have become so isolated and we’re so conflicted in how we try to exercise our leadership that it only contributes to the division and the fear that we have as citizens in our community.”
