LOS ANGELES - Culture Conversations is a brand new FOX 11 Digital program aimed at closely examining the issues that our nation is grappling with at this moment: race, inequality, justice, policing, political strength, and what these issues mean to our future. We’ll also examine how Black culture has shaped America and continues to influence our generation. Each week host Mimi Brown will interview change-makers, influencers, and celebrities on weekly newsworthy topics.
In this episode:
Compton Mayor Aja Brown: Sworn in at 31 years old, Brown is the youngest mayor in Compton’s history. Since being elected in 2013 she’s made it her mission to advance the city of Compton in every way. In recent weeks, she’s been on the front lines, protesting and raising her voice for justice, demanding change for her city. Mayor Brown spoke to Culture Conversation’s Mimi Brown about what it is going to take to fight for police reform and disrupt outdated systems. You can follow Brown on Instagram and Twitter.
