What are you willing to do to reach the goals you’ve been dreaming of? Would you diligently study your craft to become the best at what you do? Would you be willing to leverage the connections you make to push your dream forward? If needed, would you sell your own house? My guest on this episode, Kwame Damon Mason has done all of that and more.

After a successful career as a radio personality, he began learning about the history of black players in the sport of hockey. Kwame felt it was necessary to highlight what black athletes had contributed to the sport of hockey and that’s when his dream took shape: He wanted to make a documentary film about the subject… and the drive took over, requiring many sacrifices along the way that he was glad to give.

All that work paid off. Kwame recently completed his first feature documentary film: Soul on Ice. It’s a film about the amazing contributions of black athletes in hockey. It won “Best Picture” at the 2015 Edmonton International Film Festival and recently had its television debut on the NHL Network. Join me for this fascinating conversation about hockey, diversity, and inclusion.
