Young Leaders & Activists | Milton and Humza | Everyday Spirituality
In this episode of Everyday Spirituality, Cali Bronkema sat down with activists Humza Mumtaz and Milton Esliker who took action in their community following the death of George Floyd. This important conversation covers how and why these young leaders got involved in combating racial injustice, in addition to a discussion about microaggressions, performative activism, and education on racial issues.
These young leaders made a difference in their community by contacting local officials and the executive board of their school. We learned a lot from this enlightening discussion and we hope you will too.
“It’s all a learning process. You have to unteach yourself these things… people aren’t born this way. This is how society makes us. People can change, and that starts with self reflection.” -Humza Mumtaz
“That was one of the things that I wanted to make clear. Within our movement, at least in the beginning, I wanted to remove ourselves from Black Lives Matter because I didn’t want to fix the world. I wanted to fix our town. I knew that I could change that. That was something I could do right now.” -Milton Esliker
