One of Uncle Damien Posey's favorite things to tell people is that he's "not a role model, he's a real model."
We checked in with our Season 2, Episode 38 storyteller last week to see how he's doing and how he's feeling about the current uprising for racial justice.
In this special podcast, Damien shares some of his own experiences with racism in The City, his thoughts on the current uprising and his support role in it, and the many cultural differences that we should celebrate rather than fear. He ends the podcast talking about where he draws his strength from and what his hopes are for the near future.
We recorded this podcast during quarantine in San Francisco in June 2020.
