It was amazing today to feel like an advocate for unity in diversity, and the power of poetry, love, and education.
I mentioned Maya Angelou, Nelson Mandela, my parents and the spiritual and cultural upbringing that has made me who I am today. Love will always lead us away from hate as a solution, and words on paper can have great power to release pain and lead to understanding!
Hope you can listen in to this story of my family, paying tribute to the courage of my parents and thinking about ways we can deal with racism.
For me there are five powers to dealing with racism: Power of poetry! Power of spirituality (faith) ! Power of love! Power of Education and Excellence!
Can’t quite believe where the journey of this kickstarter has taken me. Thinking of my heroes like Maya Angelou and Nelson Mandela and also of the dear ones we have lost, like one of my brothers, and so many who have fallen partly due to the ravages of racism gives me so much passion to write and create art.
