    • Society & Culture

Nekima Levy-Armstrong, a lawyer and social justice activist, has an upfront and personal discussion with host Dr. Sylvia about her drive to consistently drive system change to advance justice and represent communities in their fight for Social Justice.  Nekima shares her rich history of community engagement as a lawyer, former Minneapolis NAACP President, and a leading candidate for the Mayoral race in 2017.  Nekima also opens up to share the terrifying moment when she received the news of her brain tumor,  her immediate reaction, how she managed through her surgery, and why her first published book, J is For Justice, has a stronger significance to her now than it did when she wrote it before her diagnosis.
