One year on from the murder of George Floyd which sparked global Black Lives Matter Protests we explore what has changed and what has stayed the same.
In this episode I have the pleasure of talking to fellow TED talk and podcaster Daniel Edmund, a dynamic speaker, presenter and social entrepreneur committed to leading this generation to a more inclusive and equitable world for all people.
I offer a content warning as we explore themes of suicide and drug use. Racist and homophobic language are also used to depict some of Daniel's lived experience.
We discuss everything from mental health, gender expression, racism in liberal friendships and toxic masculinity. We also explore our shared commitment to collective healing through anti-racism work. Daniel also led powerful protests in Bristol during the Black Lives Matter resurgence following the murder of George Floyd in summer 2020 and we talk about what that period of time was like for him, what has changed and what has stayed the same.
It's a deeply raw, honest and moving episode and I encourage those of you engaging in anti racism work to sit with any discomfort our conversation brings up.
