Back in late July of this year, I had the opportunity to sit down with David Johns from the National Black Justice Coalition, a civil rights organization dedicated to the empowerment of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer and same gender loving (LGBTQ/SGL) people, including people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). NBJC’s mission is to end racism, homophobia, and LGBTQ/SGL bias and stigma. As America’s leading national Black LGBTQ/SGL civil rights organization focused on federal public policy, NBJC has accepted the charge to lead Black families in strengthening the bonds and bridging the gaps between the movements for racial justice and LGBTQ/SGL equality.

David J. Johns is known for his passion, public policy acumen and fierce advocacy for youth. He is an enthusiast about equity—leveraging his time, talent and treasures to address the needs of individuals and communities often neglected and ignored. A recognized thought leader and social justice champion, David’s career has focused on improving life outcomes and opportunities for Black people.

On September 1, 2017, David Johns began his next life chapter as the executive director of the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC)—a civil rights organization dedicated to the empowerment of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people, including people living with HIV/AIDS. NBJC’s mission is to end racism, homophobia, and LGBTQ bias and stigma.

We discuss his work at the NBJC, our work together with Chikesia Clemons and Anthony Wall along with a plethora of other things.

Power Station with David Johns

What does it take to unapologetically and intentionally show up in the world as your authentic self? How do you generate the cultural shifts required for all people to be free? These are thoughts that motivate David Johns in his leadership of the National Black Justice Coalition. David lives and works at the intersection of the Black and LGBTQ experience where these questions are fundamental to the everyday experience. He and his team advocate for public policies in housing, health, schools and criminal justice that are essential to the safety and security of African-American lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender people. And he extends his advocacy to broader networks because, as he explains, “You cannot purport to care about Black people unless you care about all Black people.” He acts on this understanding by challenging Black civil rights organizations to recognize and honor their LGBTQ members and pressing majority White LGBTQ groups to do the same for their Black constituents. In other words, he is a voice and a force for the unique needs of Black LGBTQ people. David came to NBJC after serving, during the administration of President Barack Obama, as the first executive director of the White House Initiative for Educational Excellence. In that role, he organized a series of Summits that provided a platform for African American LGBTQ youth who knew first-hand the feelings of isolation and marginalization by their schools and communities. And his policy acumen was earned on Capitol Hill, where he was a policy advisor to Senator Tom Harkin and Senator Ted Kennedy. At heart, David Johns, a true change maker, is still the kindergarten teacher he once was who passionately pursues a better future for his students.

Episode 4: #TeachtheBabies (ft. David Johns and Dr. John King)

We finally got to sit down with David Johns and Dr. John King at The Inaugural National Black Male Educators Convening in Philly last month, hosted by The Fellowship: Black Male Educators for Social Justice.

Last episode we chatted with Sharif El-Mekki and Vincent Cobb II, co-organizers of the Convening, which you can listen to here.

First, we speak with David Johns, executive director of the National Black Justice Coalition and a PhD student at Columbia University. We discuss how to give students more of a voice in schools and conferences like this one, and somehow we end up talking about media portrayals of Black families—think Black-ish, Cosby Show and obviously T.I. & Tiny.

Next, we talk to Dr. King Jr., the president and CEO of The Education Trust, and formerly the secretary of education under President Obama from 2016 to 2017. He shares his personal story towards becoming an educator, and answers the question we all want to know: How do you get White people to care about teachers of color.
