His message is direct and easy to digest

His message is direct and easy to digest, he's what some would call new age and what we would call "authentic".


We had a chance to view his perspective during #blackhistory month when he and Adi were both featured on the same news clip with WVTM 13, Bautista. (Watch the clip) https://www.wvtm13.com/article/breaking-barriers-stigma-yoga-instructor-black-owned-studio-birmingham/42998278


The things he said during that interview got us curious so Adi set up an interview with him to find out more. You can see that clip here: https://youtu.be/licgHBpA5NI?si=_goXni1pAj7MXwKH


Our biggest takeaway from The Man in the Durag is that it's natural and normal not to be ok. Seeking help is a normal part of life and one shouldn't be ashamed or feel guilt around that.

McClain has continued to show up for us by attending our 2nd Annual Melanin Mala Project in May and supporting the renovation by donating to our $20,000 GoFundMe. https://gofund.me/ac46c8b9


He's someone we would recommend 10/10. Find him on Linked In and Instagram.
