The system wasn't made to serve everybody but we all have a collective power to change the system. This thought-provoking poetry by Vida DeLeon, asks the important questions: How much would you be willing to take before taking action? What can you do to help create a better future?
The video features some incredible people that @poetlifeofthelion wanted to celebrate , Maya Angelou, James Baldwin, Miles Davis, Audre Lorde and Paul Robinson- if you don't recognise these faces we encourage you to give them a google, their lives, stories and words will inspire you!
