Marcus Glover: Real Talk on Racism in America & The Way Forward

Episode Summary

#thePOZcast is proud to present a incredibly important conversation: Racism in America. Our guide and storyteller will be one of my main mentors, Marcus Glover. I have known Marcus for 7 years and during this time he has been a shining beacon of how to be of service to his community, his fellow man and to everyone that comes in contact with him. I am grateful for him for introducing me to Defy Ventures, which has 100% changed my views on the prison system and getting me out of my own comfort zone. Today, we will get uncomfortable and have the necessary conversations that are critically important right now to turn words into action.
