A woman, her words, her intelligence and her devotion.
That is all one needs. At least for Sekai Edwards (17).
Portland’s one and only: Jefferson High School BSU (Black Student Union) President, N/NE Portland community organizer, Portland’s first ever co-Youth Poet Laureate, Black Students United Founder, along with a myriad of other titles, Edwards is a one-of-a-kind human.
Crafted and molded by her parent’s morality, personal experience and “militant,” get-it-done mindset, she has managed to be something greater than the “angry black woman” and more of a ‘woman who is angry with social inequality, and happens to be black.’
Listen as the candid, forthright and discerning words of Sekai Edwards, transports you to a planet that may someday be-- the New Portland.
