This week I sit down with black fashion blogger Uzochi Okoronkwo about the recent events of police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement.
We talk about growing up in Maryland with Nigerian immigrant parents, being black in Japan, why people are hesitant to speak up, and why we are all connected to this movement– no matter who or where we are.
