Dwayne Edwards grew up in Inglewood California in the 1970’s at a time when black communities thrived and you could feel the love from neighbor to neighbor. With the crack epidemic wreaking havoc in the late 70’s and bad influences around the corner, Dwayne refused to be limited to the cards he was dealt. He believed there could be another path. Using his pencil to express himself artistically, Dwayne began a commitment to his craft. Life is a journey not a destination and Dwayne’s story is a real time example of that. Join us on episode 006 to experience Dwayne’s journey through the peaks and valleys of the shoe business and what led him to start his very own school...the Pensole Academy.
