Project 21 member Abdul-Rahman Magba-Kamara – commonly known as AK – owns a delivery business in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. He also co-hosts a weekly podcast called “Black Republican Black Democrat” that discusses, debates and argues about political, cultural and social issues.
AK was born to mixed race, mixed religion and mixed nationality parents. He grew up in the rural town of Devils Lake, North Dakota in near-abject poverty. As a teenager, he sold and used drugs, joined and quit a gang and had a on-again/off-again relationship with his church’s youth group ministry. A high school drop-out, he moved out on his own at the age of 15. He was later kicked out of the state of Utah after being arrested and charged with several felonies, joined and received a general discharge from the U.S. Army and was homeless – all before he turned 19 years old.

Retired Colorado State Senator Ted Harvey has always had a passion for protecting the Constitution and the unborn, while promoting the free-market principle which have resulted in America’s unmatched exceptionalism. At the age of 22, Ted received a political appointment to serve in the White House of President Ronald Reagan, which ignited his passion for traditional conservatism.
After returning home, Ted quickly became involved in Colorado politics, working as a staffer in the Colorado State House and then as the Program Director of the Independence Institute, a Denver-based think tank. Ted also served as the District Office Manager for Representative Joel Hefley (R-CO).
In December 2001, through a vacancy election, Ted was elected to the Colorado House of Representatives and became a conservative champion inside the State House. He was re-elected in both 2002 and 2004, and then elected to the Colorado State Senate in 2006 and 2010.
