Civil Rights Attorney Nekima Levy-Pounds & Mint Condition’s Ricky Kinchen Speak on our Flawed System

During our Minneapolis live broadcast, we had the pleasure to welcome Twin City royalty, Nekima Levy-Pounds & Mint Condition’s Ricky Kinchen.

Nekima is an American lawyer, professor, activist, and writer. She served as president of the Minneapolis chapter of the NAACP from 2015–2016.

Watch above as both Nekima and Ricky speak on our flawed system, address Minnesota race issues and the day-to-day struggles of someone in the community.

A very insightful conversation that ended in a surprise freestyle of a local hyena while Nekima beat-boxed! Never a dull moment. Watch above and follow @nvlevy for more.
