The Clinton Peabody Show's Local Flavor
By Monique Dennis
Our story begins with food. It all started with the idea of shining a light on the local food trucks and restaurants in Corpus Christi. After sharing that inspiration with his closest confidantes, Jacolby Satterwhite realized a bigger impact could be made, in an even more significant way, by involving the whole community. That allowed for his initial idea to be manifested and evolve into a local hit program: The Clinton-Peabody Show.
The Clinton-Peabody Show is named after the street Satterwhite lived on. Growing up in the Hillcrest area, he was influenced and inspired by the culture and history of his community. In 2017, the city began tearing down the Hillcrest neighborhoods to make way for the new Harbor Bridge. Hillcrest, one of the last majority Black and Hispanic neighborhoods left in Corpus Christi, is a sad memory for Northside natives, such as Satterwhite – but it helped fuel his determination to start the show and promote positive representation for Corpus Christi.
“My goal is to use the show as a platform to bridge the gap between all ethnicities, all cultures and all of the people in my community,” Satterwhite says when asked what he hopes the show brings to our community. “They took our bridge, so I became the bridge!”
Aside from the show, Satterwhite runs a basketball training camp in South Texas, called Supreme Training, and is a rapper, community activist, and up-and-coming Coastal Bend entrepreneur; he and his partner sell and market a clothing brand called The WaveGods Supreme. Essentially every facet of Satterwhite’s life comes back to the love he has for this community and he continues to pour that into each of his ventures.
