Also new to the show is a college advice segment for HBCU students. Episode 18 introduces “How We Live” with advice for alumni about the legal side of starting a business. The highly energetic Anthony Ray, host of “The HBCU Nation Radio Show” pays the podcast a visit, and the feature interview is Wes Bellamy a rising star in community leadership in Virginia.


The introductory “How We Live” segment takes a look at the legal aspects of starting a business, something many Americans never think about. Charlotte Key, an attorney who specializes in business transactions, provides the insight. Key is an alumna of the Howard University School of Law.

He is young rising star in community leadership. Before reaching 30-years-old Bellamy has made a highly competitive run for political office in Charlottesville, started a non-profit, earned his master’s degree, become a non-profit board director, and has even become the host of a popular morning radio show. All of this comes from a man who passed up the opportunity to play college football at a Southeastern Conference university. Instead of gridiron glory stories, Bellamy speaks passionately about how the HBCUs he attended have helped him become the leader he is.

Bellamy received his bachelor’s degree from South Carolina State University and his master’s from Virginia State University where he is also pursuing his doctorate. The Atlanta native is the founder of H.Y.P.E. (Helping Young People Evolve), president of the Young Black Professional Network, a member of the 100 Black Men of Charlottesville board of directors, and the host of the “Soul of the City” morning show on WUVA-FM. He was also named one of HBCU Buzz’s “Top 30 Under 30”.
