In this episode of Story Sessions RobYoung sits with Genesis Be to discuss her family legacy in activism and civil rights. She details the history of her grand father Reverend Clyde Briggs and his fight for voters rights in the racially divisive hub of Mississippi, and his fight against the KKK. Genesis Be details how that has affected her own passion for human rights and the pressure that comes along with. Genesis Be also discusses her national news worthy protest of the confederate flag, the history behind the flag and confederacy itself and her thoughts on how to preserve the history in a respectful manner. Watch Both Episodes Below.
This interview was conducted before the the monumental decision to change the Mississippi flag.
About Genesis Be:
As The Introverted Orator, she uses my unique expertise as a rapper, speaker and writer to help the next generation of leaders and entertainers make their mark on the World! Find your voice, build your brand and OWN the stage. Her work has been featured in Billboard, LA Times, Vice Impact, NY DailyNews, Breitbart, VoyageATL and much more. She is verified across three major platforms (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) and have 18 years of experience of rocking stages, producing albums, writing original music for other artists and organizations. As an art activist, She is the founder of People Not Things. What “People Not Things” means to me, is a declaration that humans have drifted away from the ancient truth that we are not the labels that are ascribed to us, we are simply humans. People are not Things. This simple phrase is my own personal attempt to drift our consciousness back to this truth, and away from the gross division that has been ingrained in us. Although we differ culturally and many other ways, these differences are meant to be celebrated and shared not to be exploited and capitalized upon... as has become our societies norm. She truly believes that every human spirit harbors the ability to inspire and empower those around them. Follow Genesis Be Genesisbe.com Instagram: https://instagram.com/genesisbe
