Bryan Stevenson is the founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, fighting poverty and challenging racial discrimination in the criminal justice system.
June 2020 in midst of COVID-19, like so many of us across the world Constantine was impacted and affected by the visual and moving images of George Floyd being murdered in front of our eyes, he sent in a poem and went onto to recite his own words in audio so we can allow you to not just read, you can listen too.
I AM NOT "OTHER"
"To give them context, I am not a writer, far less a poet. These words came out spontaneously in the wake of the George Floyd murder. I just wrote them down as they came, and didn't edit or re-write, although there might have been some benefit in that!"
"... the work of Bryan Stevenson, the academic and civil rights lawyer... My go-to quote of his is "The difference between poverty and wealth is not money. The difference between poverty and wealth is justice".
Read the written word and or listen to the author recite I AM NO "OTHER" in audio using his own voice below.
