Society and the entire world being turned on its head won’t stop me. Anger, exhaustion and hurt won’t stop me. Losing and grieving won’t either. I have a calling, responsibility, platform and honor of continuing to do the work, even in the face of it all. It’s painful, agonizing, and exhausting. I’ve cried more tears than I ever thought I was capable of, but THAT won’t STOP me either. I’m showing up - Imperfect and with ALL of my feelings, to serve and lead. I honestly need this type of escape, and am looking forward to it. Join me Wednesday, June 3rd at 9:03pm EST | 8:03pm CST | 6:03pm PST (Yes, TONIGHT) , as I sit down with my next incredible guest, @ebonynmayo, Actress, Entrepreneur, Activist + Creator of @mayiocigar.

Another True story joint I checked out today. This is one helluva story I never heard about but it really made see how much again we have been held back to have a better life and live the American Dream. I already knew this but now I gotten even better glimpse of achieving wealth and also inspired to believe in myself even more that you can do whatever you put your mind to. End to the story “Everything is about numbers”. Must see movie #movietowatch #bestmovies #blacklivesmatter #blackamerica #blackactors #blackdirectors #blackwriters #blackartist #blackfilmmakers #mustseemovie #blackhistory #truestory

With all this black pain all over social media, and getting checked on my role in this blackout, by my beautiful wife, I decided to highlight some of my biggest inspirations over the next few posts. This will include black, musicians, music artists, actors, DP’s, Writers and Directors that I hope to one day stand among. I’m beginning with Oscar winning or nominated directors that inspire me. *For clarification the Oscar nomination will be related to any department of a film they directed. #blackfilmmakers #blacklivesmatter #blm 1. Ryan Coogler (BLACK PANTHER winning 3 Oscars for best achievement in written music for motion picture, best achievement in costume design, and best achievement in production design) 2. Jordan Peele (GET OUT, Oscar winner for best Original Screenplay) 3. Ava Duvernay (SELMA, Oscar winner for best achievement in written music for motion picture.) 4. Steve McQueen (12 YEARS A SLAVE, Oscar winner for Best adapted screenplay, Best Performance by an actress in a supporting role, and Best Motion Picture of the year.) 5. Barry Jenkins (MOONLIGHT, Oscar winner for Best Motion Picture of the year, Best Performance by and Actor in a supporting role, Best adapted screenplay; IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK, Oscar winner for Best Performance by and Actor in a supporting role 6. Spike Lee, BLACKKKLANSMAN, Oscar winner for best adapted screenplay. #Blackmagic #blackexcellence #Blackhabits #blackmedicine #everythingblack

LEO9 ENT. Is devoted to helping those understand the bigger picture. When I was a youngster I was misled and force-fed the bulls shit and until I took my first trip to Africa which opened me to a global perspective of business and the lies America devised to separate us. #blackbusiness #blackownedbusiness #mpls #mindfulness #mindovermatter #twincities #africanamerican #african #videographer #blackfilmmakers #icantbreathe #unlearnandrelearn

It’s not the responsibility of the oppressed to educate their oppressors. Do your own research, question your own biases and privileges, unlearn, re-educate yourself, call racism out, raise BIPOC up and listen when they speak. These are a few of my favourite things. For those who struggle to prioritise reading (🙋🏻‍♀️), get the audiobooks and start listening on walks/in the car/on public transport/while you clean. You’ll tear through books like you’re 12 again. FILMS 1. Moonlight (2016, dir. Barry Jenkins) 2. When They See Us (2019, dir. Ava DuVernay) 3. Get Out (2017, dir. Jordan Peele) 4. If Beale Street Could Talk (2019, dir. Barry Jenkins) BOOKS 1. Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race (2017, Reni Eddo-Lodge) 2. White Tears, Brown Scars (2019, Ruby Hamad) 3. White Fragility (2018, Robin DeAngelo) 4. How to be an Antiracist (2019, Ibram X. Kendi) #blacklivesmatter #blackvoicesheard #blackfilmmakers #blackauthors
