“Antiracism activation is a verb. It is a sustainable grassroots movement of humanity tied to generational leadership.”
My journey towards antiracism activation begins with my George Floyd origin story and the Cairo Question: Will Cairo have to protest in his lifetime for the birthright to freely and peacefully exist in the skin in which he was born? My work since 2020 has been greatly influenced by Dr. Robert Livingston of Harvard University, and author of The Conversation: How Seeking and Speaking the Truth Can Radically Transform Individuals and Organizations. I developed an Activism through Coaching Model build on personal transformation and four basics tenets : courage, conversation, relationship, and accountability. In 2021 I created InflexionPoint Podcast with a strong bend towards historical and racial literacy, and exploring what it means to be Black globally. Most recently in 2023 I produced the First Annual Antiracism Activation Summit, featuring 15 speakers in 5 days.
