Have You Heard Of Kalief Browder?

Have you heard of Kalief Browder?

On May 15, 2010, he was walking home with a friend when a cop car pulled up next to them. They had a man in the car who was riding around with them that night trying to find the “two black men” who had allegedly robbed his brother a few weeks earlier. Kalief was placed under arrest and sent to Rikers Island for three years. He was 16 years old.

Out of the 1,000 days that he spent in prison, 800 of those were in solitary confinement.

The entire time Kalief maintained his innocence despite the horrific violence and brutality he suffered from other inmates and the correctional staff.

Kalief was later acquitted of all charges. He was innocent the entire time.

This documentary is crucial to watch. It shows the horrific injustice of the “justice” system and tells the story of another young black man in the wrong place at the wrong time. I say “another” because this happens every day.

#BlackLivesMatter at all times. If you watch this and aren’t outraged your moral compass is inherently flawed.

Kalief, I’m enraged and heartbroken that your life had to end this way. You did nothing to deserve the horrendous things that happened to you.

We must do better.

  • “True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.

True belonging is the spiritual practice of believing in and belonging to yourself so deeply that you can share your most authentic self with the world and find sacredness in both being a part of something and standing alone in the wilderness.” @brenebrown

  • This year I signed on as a marketing columnist for my local newspaper The Mountain Ear!

My first column came out last week and talks about the beginning steps toward setting up a social media marketing plan for your small business. As a digital-driven millennial, it's fun to see my words in print. 😊
  • Decisions are not isolated events. They point us in the direction we're headed. While I feel like I've made a lot of progress this past year, there are things in my past that are holding me up. I'm making a commitment to let go of that hurt instead of trying to make it better. Saying goodbye was always the right decision. I just wish I'd realized that sooner.
