The Revision Path was started by designer Maurice Cherry to highlight the achievements of fellow black designers. Since then, both the podcast, and Cherry, have enjoyed accolades and attention from across the podcasting landscape and beyond.
Harry welcomes Maurice to talk about what led to the podcasts creation, how Facebook reached out to him to help them hire more black designers, and about his time in a diversity-focused taskforce for the AIGA; a group dedicated to helping designers across the world.
