A Life of Public Service, Civil Rights Activism & Cultural Leadership

“50 years ago, I was a young activist fighting for Civil Rights in my native Detroit and the Jim Crow South. Today, I’m running for State Senate to continue fighting for systemic, progressive change.


Unfortunately, even in 2021, the largest school system in Rhode Island is still failing thousands of marginalized students. While there are many important issues, my highest priority will be fixing this injustice before we lose another generation of children to a broken system.”
