For this week's episode, I talked to Doron Townsell. Doron is a Brookladelphian via a few cities in between. His family is from Philadelphia, but he was born in St. Louis then moved back to Philly as a kid, then moved to the Midwest for college and now is back on the east coast in Brooklyn. Doron teaches at Teaching Firms of America-Professional Preparatory Charter School. Sound familiar? That's because the school's principal is a Brookladelphian as well.
As I mentioned, Doron is a teacher, but he's also a gifted MC. He goes by the name Insight Musik. His rhymes are clever, calculating and with honest purpose. We set up shop on the corner at The Bushwick Collective and talked for quite a bit about his journey in Brooklyn and his plans.
