A Mayor's Life -rev from Toni Williams on Vimeo.

The first Black mayor of New York City, David Dinkins, talks to Brooklyn Savvy about his extraordinary journey into public service and how “hopelessly hooked” he’s become. In a very relaxed mode, the former mayor gave interesting details about his governing of the biggest city in the U.S. Dinkins sounds funny at times and emotional occasionally. But the candidness with which the Jersey-born icon of New York expresses his views is telling. He is particular about the opportunities he embraced, the challenges that came along and his legacy. He emphasizes the roles of others in his success, describing himself as the “beneficiary of the hard work done by a lot of people.” Despite all the challenges Dinkins faced, he says being mayor of New York – a city he likens to a “gorgeous mosaic” – is the best job of its kind in the whole world. Mayor Dinkins also talked about his parents, his upbringing and the things that shaped his values. The full conversation, with Toni Williams, is inspired by Dinkin’s book, “A Mayor’s Life: Governing New York’s Gorgeous Mosaic.”

It seems like race relations continues to be a behind the curtain issue. Unbeknownst or in denial to many, the impact of slavery still weighs very heavily on our family’s lineage. Toni, Co-hosts Denise Arbesu and Sylvia Wong chat with Elizabeth Sturgess-LLerena, Julie Finch and Mitchell Wu on how to confront the legacy of slavery in order to truly reconcile in the present and move forward. Sylvia, Julie and Elizabeth share with the panel their involvement in with Coming to The Table a diverse and very active group passionate about researching and discovering one’s family history and involvement in slavery. Mitchell also leads the panel to analyze the “divide and conquer “mentality and how it creates a disconnect between races and opportunity. The candid conversation delves into the notion of “white privilege,” and the complexities that transpire from it. This is definitely a must see!

Brooklyn Savvy airs 8:00 am on Sundays on Channel 25 and Cablevision (Ch 22). You can also tune into Brooklyn Savvy on NYC.gov for more interesting and provocative conversations.
