I am rebroadcasting my interview with NAACP Legal Defense Fund president and director-counsel Sherrilyn Ifill in its entirety. Why? Because in a world where my social media feeds tell me that most people believe fictitious leading women who sleep with married men, fix the problems of entitled people who use their power and wealth to dodge accountability and drink, alone, like fish, and vapid, profanity and fist slinging reality "stars" are models of successful, empowered and respectable womanhood worthy of conversation, I'd like to invite you to stop for a moment, be present to the real deal and elevate your definition of "fierce."
Sherrilyn Ifill is Exhibit A.
If you did not hear this interview the first time, I ask you to make the time to listen to it now. If you did listen to it the first time, I invite you to listen to it again and share it broadly with others.
It is time we create a new normal. I am setting the bar really high. On purpose. Consider this conversation bread for the journey.
Sherrilyn Ifill is the 7th President and Director-Counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. She is a civil rights attorney, professor of law at the University of Maryland and author of the critically acclaimed book, On the Courthouse Lawn: Confronting the Legacy of Lynching in the Twenty-First Century. Sherrilyn chats with AYG about what it takes to secure civil rights justice in the new millennium, how the disempowered can agitate, mobilize and organize to become empowered agents of change, what skills activists must possess to sustain a balanced life and avoid burnout and what female leaders inspired her along the way.
