Everyone struggles or has struggled with issues of identity. Maybe it’s the way we look or the amount of success we have achieved or perhaps we want to change who we are to please someone else. The question “Who am I?” is fundamental, and when we allow others or our culture to answer that question for us, it can lead to devastating consequences. In this episode, Rasool asks Ekemini Uwan “Where Ya From?” and discovers how the ideology of white supremacy impacted not only the way she viewed herself, but also how combatting this ideology led to her to become an anti-racist.
