Co-founder of Black Lives Matter, Alicia Garza, left the organization in 2017. Why? It had a lot to do with the political climate of the US and wanting to pivot into civil engagement, which she see’s as the key to getting black people more than just a seat at the table. Alicia shares why her path changed, her current work with Black Futures Lab and the sometimes scary impact that activism has had on her life and day-to-day safety. Plus, does Alicia have any political aspirations of her own? Jemele is getting some answers about any hopes of being in political office.
