“Our organizations and work were stronger when we collaborated”

We interviewed Jim Wells about Blackboard Labs' merge with Jr. Music Executive for our new PhillyCAM show, "Around the Corner."

Lights, camera, hip-hop talk.

“Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area. 


Generocity has made the jump to television.

We’re teaming up with PhillyCAM to produce a show called “Around the Corner,” during which we’ll interview Philly leaders about what’s new with them and why it matters. (Coincidentally, PhillyCAM, located one and a half blocks from Generocity HQ at The Curtis Center, is literally around the corner from us.)

For our first “Around the Corner” interview, Community Manager Mo Manklang spoke with Jim Wells of Blackboard Labs. The nonprofit is in the process of merging with another, Jr. Music Executive — both teach business skills and community building via music and hip-hop culture. He filled us in on how Blackboard Labs got started and why it’s making this shift.

To watch all the interviews together, catch “Around the Corner” on Comcast channel 66/966HD/967 or Verizon FIOS channel 29/30 in Philadelphia.
