It also examines the dangerous impact of a society that excludes people from contributing culturally, due to the color of their skin, how they worship, and who they love.

This episode’s creative coach is spoken word artist, Yosimar Reyes, who, as an undocumented, queer artist, struggled to find role models.

This episode explores the notion of a “single story,” a phrase coined by Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Featuring Yosimar Reyes.
