I had the privilege of teaching beat making, songwriting, and solidarity building at an all girls community center in the Dominican Republic, called @mariposadrfoundation Years later, I'm still connected to this wonderful organization and have modeled @thespaceblack after some of the work we've done there and at other arts-activism organizations internationally. King left us a legacy of service, let's raise up the awesome communities committed to social justice this MLK holiday! #solidarity #PanAfrican #Durham #Dominican #hiphop #MLK

#fbf Yesterday I was asked in my City Council interview how I handle stress. Here's your answer. Taking time to kick it with the people I love. My family rejuvenates and restores me and keeps me accountable. They love and support me unconditionally even with all my faults. Read more about how I balance the personal and political on @beontheballot. Here's a throwback from a family romp at the @durhamfarmersmarket with @durhammag MORE OF THIS IN 2018, right babe @kpfreelon??

What an amazing day! I had the honor of addressing Durham's city and county employees, in celebration of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. During my speech, I compared King's civil disobedience to the actions of our beloved community, who tore down Durham's Confederate monument. I called for the felony charges against them to be dropped, and today that has happened! I guess the ancestors were listening! #DefendDurham #Durham #MLK #ancestors #SpeakYourTruth #SpeakTruthToPower #loclivin

Thanks for the love y'all. #FreelonForDurham

Auntie Maya Angelou told me: "your ancestors bought you a future free from shame, and bright beyond the telling of it". So honored to speak about the legacy of her friend and comrade, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. tomorrow at First Presbyterian at noon. She needs her own holiday too! #wcw #Durham #legacy #mom #auntie #fam

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was only 34 years old when he delivered his iconic ‘I Have A Dream’ speech. If the March on Washington were today, King would be what we call a ‘millennial’. As a millennial myself who was born and raised in Durham — a city with a median age of 32 — I feel especially privileged to be asked to speak about King’s legacy in these historic times. Durham is at the center of a national conversation on race, with the toppling of our Confederate monument. I look forward to exploring this moment, in the context of King’s legacy of civil disobedience.

Join me Thursday at First Presbyterian church downtown Durham. Deets are below:
