13: YT Bell Conversation [Supercut]


Peace and Resist Podcast

Keep Georgia on your mind - YT Bell has great stories of her time as a local representative in Clarkston, Georgia (one of the most diverse parts of the country). Kedro talks with YT about access, access, access. YT is a community advocate, organizer, and leader - from being a Fair Fight Senior Fellow 2020 to giving a commencement address for the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, she knows what it takes to move Georgia, the South, and the country forward. We talk about a lesser-known story of John Lewis, Andrew Young, MLK, and Bloody Sunday. Plus, Fannie Lou Hamer and the importance of knowing history - a lot of organizing now is rooted in that history! We talk about Renee Montgomery becoming a WNBA owner - and the former Senator who was forced to give up her stake in the Atlanta Dream's ownership. The arrest of GA State Rep. Park Cannon, the past arrest of Rep. Nikema Williams, and quotes from each of them. YT shares what is needed and how outside activists who plan to come to Georgia can help in the most effective ways. Keep Georgia on your mind.
