In our 4th episode from Season 1, we feature Bernie Foster. Bernie is a native son. An Evanstonian. The youngest of 9 siblings. A family man. We welcomed his cool, calm, collected, and thoughtful spirit as we sat down together. Bernie is always solid. He shows up and has known that to make something happen, you don’t wait for it to come to you. You go after it. We discuss life, joys, change, fear, belief, the changes in our city, some of the things that we hope for and not sitting on the sidelines. We discuss the importance of mentors and role models, and the need to show up for those in need as people showed up for us. We remember black leadership in the Evanston community and those who literally paved the way and led by example.
