Hers is a fascinating story of how her life began steeped in Black Nationalism through the prism of Black Liberation Theology growing up attending The Shrine of The Black Madonna in Atlanta, which informed her future pursuits. Everything from her epiphanies on anti-capitalism in college, through her post-grad education, political writing, and work with Operation P.O.W.E.R
