“What happens to a dream deferred?” - Langston Hughes


When you think of a thriving Black community and cities, what do you see?


I see Black boys with more access to living their best life than pushed through the pipeline to prison or killed by the police.


What neighborhood, city or space affirms your Blackness?

Anywhere Kendrick Lamar is performing.


What do you want your legacy to be?


I want to be remembered for fighting for structural changes to the way we think about and act on improving health outcomes for people of color.
