Meet Young Executive Keith Crawford

In today’s society, it is rare to see the future generations making it their purpose to prepare tomorrows leaders. With a mission of striving to encourage and uplift our communities by providing endless opportunities, Keith Crawford and Anquita Mitchell, graduates of the 2014 class of Carver Early College High School in Atlanta, Georgia have founded the Young Executives. Keith describes the Young Executives as an organization dedicated to providing local youth with a different point of view and exposure to different opportunities. He explains how one of the biggest setbacks in the black community is generational curses, describing how so often “we don’t know about equity, we don’t know about credit, we don’t know about things that will help us to have generational wealth” as illustrated in Beyonce‘s Boss where she speaks of her great-great-grandchildren as already being rich. He goes on to speak of a partnership with Build Yourself Up and with this connection, they created a 3-day weekend conference. This event includes an all-white party at the God is Dope headquarters and provides a networking opportunity with artists, singers, painters, authors, business owners, and many more
