210 - 3 Teachers-3 Artists-3 Black Men: A Different Conversation about #BlackLivesMatter
The world is watching. On this episode we talk about recent events from Ferguson and the killing of Mike Brown to the killing of the two NYPD officers, Liu and Ramos. But this is a different conversation. We talk with filmmaker Adam Butler and members of the conscious hip hop group, Negros Americanos, Bishop The Eastside Nappyhead and MC Enigma. All three men are Black and are school teachers. Our goal in the conversation is to come away with the beginning of a solution to the distrust between underrepresented people and communities of color as opposed to police and government systems, as well as our honest thoughts about how we, as Black people, view ourselves. #BlackLivesMatter indeed.
