Yesterday I marched with my siblings & my 9 year old nephew.
I hope we can be the change he needs to see for the next generation.
Those that know me, know how much time I spend behind the scenes pushing for us. Challenging brands / corporations on ideals, having those uncomfortable conversations having to listen to us referred to as Ghetto the list goes on.
I’ve been thinking a lot about next steps. I don’t have the answers but I’m open to speaking more to my peers on this. One thing that has come to mind is Leadership and Economic strength in the Black Community. Who will be leading this narrative going forward? Fashion can’t be on the left and music on the right. It’s all inter-linked. We need leaders from ALL industries under 1 umbrella. Agriculture, Music, Fashion, Engineering, Law , Tech, Education, Finance, Retail , Hospitality & Social Care so we can move as a fist rather than fingers. Just some of my early morning thoughts. Self isolating after a weekend of protesting but looking forward to this weeks conversations. All lives matter when blacks lives do.
