"The Ancestors Woke Me Up" feat. Leroy Moore
POWER NOT PITY's reached the Season Finale, and this one ends of a really high note and is featuring Leroy Moore! Leroy F. Moore, noted activist and poet and founder of Krip-Hop Nation (a global platform for disabled musicians) comes on the show to talk krip-hop and what his Black disabled ancestors mean to him. This episode takes a deep dive into his latest book, "Black Disabled Ancestors". I weave narration of two of his stories into our interview and I have to say it was quite magical to experience the power of Leroy's recreation of his ancestors' stories.
