Tamika Mallory: My Son’s Father Getting Murdered Pushed Me to Activism (Part 1)



New York activist Tamika D. Mallory sits down alongside Mysonne to discuss the history of her work within the social movement. Mallory describes growing up in the projects with parents who were organizers and not feeling compelled to do the same work until the murder of her son’s father. At that point, she felt it was a more significant message on what happens within the Black community and how it is overlooked.

She eventually began working for Al Sharpton and became the youngest Director of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN), and was also one of four co-chairs that helped to organize the Women’s March on Washington (2017). Watch the full clip above.
