    Being Black in America: A Special Edition of Happy Hour with Steve Guy (Raw, Uncut, Conversation on Racism)

    In the midst of a necessary social uprising and movement across the United States on the heels of yet more deaths of black people, (George Floyd, Breonna Taylor), at the hands of police officers, host Steve Guy sits down for a deep, intense, open dialogue with Kierra Cotton, John Bruton, and Jocelyn Ball. All three represent the Black Community in this conversation and come from different backgrounds and career paths. Kierra works as a digital media producer for a local news station, John is a standup comedian and graphic design artist, Jocelyn is an IT professional. They speak on what is happening right now, systemic (and blatant) racism they've dealt with in their lives and at work, media presentation of protests, support from others, and so much more. This is a raw, emotional, uncut conversation on the state of Being Black in America, in 2020.  This sit down conversation was recorded at All Saints Public House in Cleveland, OH. Many thanks to them for allowing us their space.  

    If you'd like to support and educate yourself further on systemic racism and social injustice you can visit blacklivesmatter.com which is full of resources that are educational and more. You can also visit change.org and sign multiple petitions. Both of these suggestions are of course simply starting points and you're of course encouraged to search different elements discussed in this lengthy and important conversation.
