Episode 5 | Leah James, Black Lives Matter, N-Word vs. Karen
In this episode, the Lyrical Ones interview spoken word artist and activist, Leah James and talk about the Black Lives Matter movement. "All of my life I have been surrounded by positive images of Black people. What I see in the media does not reflect my reality nor does it reflect the reality of many others. After losing my mother at a very young age, the people who raised me and took me in were Black. Every man I have ever loved (besides my biological brothers) have been black. The man I call my dad is Black. My pastor is Black. I am white. There isn't enough people of my complexion sharing their heart and love for Black People. I want to be the change I want to see in the world. I want to speak my heart with out restriction. I pray I have accomplished that in this poem. We will never see true change in the way race relations are dealt with in this country until people who are not Black stand up against the injustice happening to Black people. When injustice happens to one person it happens to us all." -Leah James Facebook: Leah James Instagram: LeahhJames Twitter: @Jamesdagirl For Bookings: MsLeahJames@gmail.com
